a beta particle is just a high energy electron, so there is no change in the elements identity, i.e. no change in the number of protons
Not the answer you are looking for? Search for more explanations.
Atomic number = protons. So since aaronq already told you there's no change in protons... which answer would make the most sense?
the last one:
less penetrating then alpha
beta particles has more penetrating ability then alpha because its has less ionising ability then alpha. Beta travels at 90% speed of light then alpha which travels at 10% speed of light.
The answer will be C beta particles cannot pass through concrete as they have low penetrating power the loss of beta particle causes an increase in the element's ATOMIC number by 1 and beta has more penetrating power so only C is incorrect!
@ArslanQureshi it can be D too because beta has high penetrating ability then alpha
yes it can be D too I will suggest using D because thickness of concrete is not mentioned
ok so.. i'm right
yes u r
it cannot penetrate concrete as it is beta emmisions are stopped by a thin sheet of lead
