Solution: What is the daughter nucleus produced when 167 Tm undergoes electron capture?

Problem

What is the daughter nucleus produced when 167 Tm undergoes electron capture?

Solution

We’re being asked to identify the daughter nucleus when 167-Tm undergoes electron capture.

Heavy (large atomic mass) elements undergo radioactive reactions  (nuclear reactions) in order to increase the stability of their nuclei.
