    Electromagnetic radiation that leaves the nucleus of a decaying nuclide is called gamma radiation, Beta radiation is when a proton or neutron in the nucleus flips and ejects an electron (or positron) and neutrino Alpha radiation is when two of the protons and neutrons leave a nucleus When a large nuclei fissions it might break into smaller nuclei as fission products, Some times neutrons are also emitted
