Problem Statement
What happens/takes place in the molybdenum nucleus as it decays to Technetium-99 when a beta particle is emitted?
Relevant Equations
None used.
This is not so much of a problem as I'm just interested If anyone knows what happens. It does relate to my homework problem tho because I had to write what Molybdenium decays into from beta which is Molybdenum-99/42Technetium-99m/43
