Beta Particle Symbol.
Beta Particle Charge.
Balmer series equation.
Negatron (β-) emission, which involves the emission of a negative beta particle or
a negative electron from the nucleus.
Positron (β+) emission, whereby a positive beta particle or positively charges electron
is emitted from the nucleus.
Electron capture does not result in the emission of any beta particle.
Beta particle uses.
Beta-decay schemes: Can describe states of beta negative state in (Cs) cesium,P) phosphorus, (Ti) titanium , (Sr) strontium (90,89). (β+) used in CT (tomographic) scan at (PET scanning) by a radioactive isotope. Such an example can be given with ( F) fluorine – 18, which is used as a path of positron feed. Titanium is used for phosphorescent lighting typically for emergency lighting. Treatment for eye and bone cancers, strontium – 90 and 89.
Beta particle mass.
The mass of the beta particle is half of two-thousandth of the mass of the proton ( 1/2000 AMU). Shielding Aluminium. Beta particles can acquire a positive or negative charge. The speed of movement of the beta particle is approximately similar to that of light. The ionization of the beta particle is less than the alpha particles.
