Problem

What is the daughter nucleus produced when?

a) 227Th undergoes alpha decay?
b) 188Hg undergoes position emission?
c) 103Mo undergoes beta decay?
d) 195Au undergoes electron capture?

Now complete the nuclear reactions with: B,n,a,Y,P;

e) 2/1H → 1/1H +__
f) 61/29Cu → 61/30Zn +___
g) 210/84Po → 206/82Pb +___

Solution

a) 227Th undergoes alpha decay?

An alpha particle is comprised of 2 protons and 2 neutrons. 


An alpha decay or alpha emission occurs when an unstable nucleus ejects an alpha particle to create a new element.
