Textbook Problem

( decay producing 90Y. The parent nuclide is a major waste product of reactors and has chemistry similar to calcium, so that it is concentrated in bones if ingested (90Y is also radioactive.)

To determine

Beta decay producing 90Y

Explanation

Formula Used:

  A = N + Z

Where A is atomic mass number

Z = Number of protons in a nucleus

X = symbol for the element

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 ofZ3890r52is 90 and

  A = 90 Z = 38N
