Question

During a negative beta decay,

Options
  • an atomic electron is ejected

  • an electron which is already present within the nucleus is ejected

  • a neutron in the nucleus decays emitting an electron

  • a proton in the nucleus decays emitting an electron.

Solution

a neutron in the nucleus decays emitting an electron

Negative beta decay is given as

`n → p + e^(-) + barnu`

Neutron decays to produce proton, electron and anti-neutrino.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
