2) An atom of 63Ni undergoes loss of a beta particle. What are the atomic number, mass number and name of the product atom?
Because atomic number Z = 95
Mass number A = 241
After an alpha (Z = 2, A = 4) emission,
Z = 95 - 2 = ...
This solution walks through the problem in a plain, succinct manner to find the new element names and atomic numbers and masses after the two incidents of alpha- and beta- decay. The solution is just over 100 words in length.
