Question

Write symbolically the process expressing the β+ decay of `""_11^22Na`. Also write the basic nuclear process underlying this decay.

Solution

The β+ decay for `""_11^22Na` is given below:

`""_11^22Na->_10^22Ne+beta^++v`

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.

pn+β++ν

This process is called beta plus decay.

 

 

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
