Textbook Problem

(a) Write the complete reaction equation for electron capture by 7Be.

(b) Calculate the energy released.

To determine

(a)

Electron capture equation by 7Be

Explanation

Given:

Strontium and its beta decay

Formula Used:

  A = N + Z

Where A is atomic mass number

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 B47e3 is 7 and

  A = 7 Z = 4N =&#

To determine

(b)

Energy emitted in the equation above
