Problem 100P

Closely examine the diagram representing the beta decay of fluorine-21 and draw the missing nucleus.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 100P:

Here, we are going to draw the missing nucleus.

Step1:

In a nuclear reaction, the sum of the superscripts (mass numbers, A) for the reactants must be equal to the sum of the superscripts for the products. Similarly, the sum of the subscripts (atomic numbers, Z) for the reactants must be equal to the sum of the subscripts for the products.

Step2:

The nucleus given in the reactant side has 9 protons, i.e., its atomic number is 9. Thus the nucleus is F.

The electron(beta particle) is represented by the symbol e.

Thus, the beta...
