Textbook Problem

(a) Write the complete β + decay equation for llC. (b) Calculate the energy released in the decay. The masses of 11C and 11B are 11.011433 and 11.009305 u, respectively.

To determine

(a)

Beta decay of carbon 11

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 C6115  is 11 and

  A = 11 Z = 6

To determine

(b)

Energy emitted in the decay
