Nuclear Decay

  1. Oct 1, 2010 #1
    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.

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