Textbook Problem

α decay producing 228Ra. The parent nuclide is nearly 100% of the natural element and is found in gas lantern mantles and in metal alloys used in jets (228Ra is also radioactive).

To determine

  α decay equation of 228Ra

Explanation

Formula Used:

  A = N + Z

Where A is atomic mass number

Z = Number of protons in a nucleus

In the expression below:

  ZAXN

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 R88228a140 is 228

  A = 228 Z = 88N
