  • Q:

    The only stable isotope of Scandium is 45Sc, but radioisotopes have been isolated that range from 36Sc to 60Sc. Isotopes heavier than 45Sc almost all use the same mode of decay to balance their proton:neutron ratio closer to 1:1. Which of the following decays do they undergo?

     

    A

    alpha decay

    B

    β- decay

    C

    β+ decay

    D

    gamma decay
