Problem 11

Write an equation describing the radioactive decay of each of the following nuclides. (The particle produced is shown in parentheses, except for electron capture, where an electron is a reactant.) a. 3 1H () b. 8 3Li ( followed by ) c c. 7 4Be (electron capture) d. 8 5B (positron)

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Chemistry Week 10 Lecture Notes: o Energy: affected by: -­‐ Size: (n)à shielding; Z; Electron Repulsion -­‐ Shape (l) à penetration Two Types of Shielding: 1. Electrons in the same energy level shield each other 2. Electrons in the inner level of energy shield the outer electrons very effectively Penetration: o Different orbitals are different distances away from the nucleus o More stable = closer to the nucleus= high penetration o Farther from the nucleus à easier to move electro
