I am particularly wondering about zircon, element 40. I notice that its isotopes decay by either electron emission positron emission or electron capture, and I was curious to know whether this is established experimentally or if quantum physics is able to predict which isotopes will decay via which method.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

thx.
