Problem: What is the daughter nucleus produced when 83Sr undergoes positron emission?

FREE Expert Solution

Position emission: forms a positron particle (01e, atomic mass = 0, atomic number = 1)

Given: 83Sr → atomic mass = 83, atomic number = 38


83 = x + 0

x = 83 → atomic mass of daughter nucleus
