Radioactive decay is the process by which a radioactive atom emits particles and energy to reach a more stable configuration. Atoms may emit alpha or beta particles from the nucleu...
What Is Radioactivity Decay?
A natural process that led to nuclear bombs, power and medicine, the study of radioactive decay has led to a deeper understanding of atoms. While most atoms are stable, lasting billions of years, others are unstable and decay. The result is a more stable...
Radioactive decay, also known as nuclear decay or radioactivity, is the process
by which a nucleus of an unstable atom loses energy by emitting radiation.
