Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1In betadecay, 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
