Write symbolically the process expressing the β+ decay of `""_11^22Na`. Also write the basic nuclear process underlying this decay.
The β+ decay for `""_11^22Na` is given below:
If the unstable nucleus has excess protons than required for stability, a proton converts itself into a neutron. In the process, a positron e+ (or a β+) and a neutrino ν are created and emitted from the nucleus.
This process is called beta plus decay.
