Question


$$\displaystyle _{ 6 }^{ 14 }{ C }\rightarrow _{ 7 }^{ 14 }{ N }+X$$
The above nuclear reaction is an example of :


A
α decay
loader
B
β decay
loader
C
β+ decay
loader
D
Fusion
loader
E
γ decay
loader

Solution

The correct option is B $$\displaystyle { \beta }^{ - }$$ decay
It is $$\beta^-$$-decay.
In $$β^−$$ decay, the weak interaction converts an atomic nucleus into a nucleus with atomic number increased by one, while emitting an electron $$(e−)$$ and an electron antineutrino (νe). $$β^−$$ decay generally occurs in neutron rich nuclei.
