In the following eight problems, write the complete decay equation for the given nuclide in the complete X Z A N notation. Refer to the periodic table for values of Z.β + decay of 50Mn.

To determine

β + Decay equation of 50Mn

Explanation

Formula Used:

A=N+Z

WhereAis atomic mass number

Z = Number of protons in a nucleus

N = Number of neutrons in a nucleus

In the expression below:

AZXN

Z = Number of protons in a nucleus

X = symbol for the element

We know that

A = N + Z

Where A is atomic mass number

The atomic mass ofM2550n25is 50 and

A = 50 Z = 25N = 25
