1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
complete the following decay equations by inserting the missing particle or nuclide information. Identify each type of decay.

see attached screenshot please.
2. Relevant equations



3. The attempt at a solution
I've done all of the decays but we have to label them and I'm not sure what iv would be called.

Thanks

ok thanks, I called the rest
i) Beta Decay
ii)Beta Decay (positron emission)
iii) Alpha Decay
iv)
v) gamma decay (annihilation)
I was'nt sure about the last one and can you see any problems with the rest??

THANKS
