    The question is apparently important enough for us to jump and answer - he is waiting, you know - but not important enough for him to write clearly and without txt-speak.

    the question is. as everyone knows unstable nuclei decays , can stable nuclei decay ? if answer is in yes then how it decays?

    As far as I know a stable nucleus will not spontaneously decay. Otherwise it wouldn't be stable.
