Textbook Problem

β decay producing 137Ba. The parent nuclide is a major waste product of reactors and has chemistry similar to potassium and sodium, resulting in its concentration in your cells it ingested.

To determine

Beta decay producing 137Ba

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 of

  C55137s82is 137 and

  A = 137 Z = 55N = 82
