What happens when a gamma ray is emitted from the nucleus of an atom? It reduces the overall energy of the nucleus. It increases the overall energy of the nucleus. It causes a charge imbalance in the nucleus. It changes the number of electros in the atom.

    This is a gamma ray \[\gamma _{0}^{0} \]

    the top number is atomic mass, the bottom is atomic number/ charge. what do you notice about them @bookworm269

    Yep so it has no mass and charge

    So the only thing it can do is release energy causing your atom to be more stable

    So the answer is that it would reduce the overall energy of the nucleus?
