Which of the following statements is true about beta particles? Question 11 options: When a radioactive atom emits a beta particle, the overall mass number stays the same. The penetrating power of a beta particle is less than that of an alpha particle. A beta particle is symbolized by the Greek letter γ. A beta particle is the same as a helium nucleus. When a radioactive atom emits a beta particle, the original atom's atomic number decreases by two.
