Problem: What is the daughter nucleus produced when 63Zn undergoes electron capture?

FREE Expert Solution

Electron capture: initial nucleus captures an electron (01e, atomic mass = 0, atomic number = 1)

Given: 63Zn → atomic mass = 63, atomic number = 30


63 + 0 = x

x = 63 → atomic mass of daughter nucleus
