An atom of 28_13 AI decays into stable nuclide 28_14 Si by emitiing a beta particle.
What's 28_14 Si ?
the ans given is positive ion?
in my opinion, it should be a neutral atom... which is correct?
Think about conservation of charge. If a beta particle is emitted, what does that tell you about what remains?If the 28 _13 nucleus decay then the positive ion is formed? Am I right? But here's an atom not nucleus
