Alpha Emission

  1. Nov 6, 2014 #1
    Alpha particle emits when no. of neutrons in an atom are much more...
    My ques. Is that the no. Of protons and neutrons emitted are same so the substance formed after the reaction should still have much more neutrons than protons..
    Infact mathematically the ratio increases.
