Textbook Problem

(a) Write the complete β decay equation for 90Sr, a major waste product of nuclear reactors. (b) Find the energy released in the decay.

To determine

(a)

Beta decay equation strontium 90

Explanation

Given:

Strontium and its beta decay

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 S3890r is 90 and

  A = 90 Z = 38</

To determine

(b)

Energy emitted in the decay
