Solution: Fill in the symbol for the missing particle in the following nuclear equation.

Solution: Fill in the symbol for the missing particle in the following nuclear equation.

Problem

Fill in the symbol for the missing particle in the following nuclear equation.

Solution

We are being asked to identify the missing particle in the nuclear reaction given.

?  e+10 + C613


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

• In a radioactive decay or emission reaction:

the radioactive particle is ejected from the nucleus
forms a product.  

• A positron emission
