Question

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

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

Solution

## The correct option is B $$\displaystyle { \beta }^{ - }$$ decayIt 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.    Chemistry
