Textbook Problem

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.

α decay of 226Ra, another isotope in the decay series of 238U, FIrst recognized as a new element by the Curies. Poses special problems because its daughter is a radioactive noble gas.

In the following four problems, identity the parent nuclide and write the complete decay equation in the X Z A N notation. Refer to the periodic table for values of Z.

To determine

  αdecay equation of 226Ra

Explanation

Formula Used:

  A = N + Z

Where A is atomic mass number

Z = Number of protons in a nucleus

In the expression below:

  XZAN

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 ofR88226a138is 226 and

  A = 226 Z = 88N = 138

Thus, </
