The process by which weak nuclear forces in carbon-14 isotopes transform a neutron into a proton while releasing an electron is called alpha decay beta decay relative dating absolute dating I think it is beta decay @genius12

    In beta-decay, the atom shoots out an electron. If you think about it, a neutron is the composition of an electron and a proton. That's why it 'neutral'. When an electron is shot, that neutron now becomes a proton and released electron is the beta particle. @watermelon14

    Now we can get in to the details of beta-negative/positive decay but I'll leave that for now.
