Write a nuclear equation for positron emission by each nuclide.
Step 1 of 3
Here, we are going to write a nuclear equation for positron emission by each nuclide.
Positron particle is defined as
Proton → Neutron + emitted positron
The nuclear equation is
11p 01n + +10e
Thus, When an atom emits a positron, its atomic number decreases by 1 because it has one
less proton after emission.
