Class 12 Physics Nuclei Gamma decay

Gamma decay

  • In Gamma decay γ rays are emitted.γ rays are electromagnetic waves with short wavelength.
  • Most of the daughter nuclei of alpha decay and beta decay are in excited state.
  • As a result they are unstable.When the daughter nuclides try to transit from excited state to ground state they emit radiations.
  • These radiations are known as γThis known as gamma decay.
