🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Dockery's class at KSU.
What is the daughter nucleus produced when 167 Tm undergoes electron capture?
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.
• In a radioactive capture or absorption reaction
• radioactive particle is taken into the element
• seen as a reactant
• An electron capture
