Problem

Consider comparing the two Phosphorous radionuclides given below and their corresponding half-life periods. Which statement below is true? 

a. Phosphorous 28 decays taster and is the least stable nuclide. 

b. Phosphorous 28 decays faster and is the most stable nuclide. 

c. Phosphorous 32 decays faster and is the most stable nuclide. 

d. Phosphorous 32 decays faster and is the least stable nuclide. 

e. They both decay at the same rate but Phosphorous 28 is more stable.
