Answer:

They are three different things. Alpha and Beta radiation are particles. Gamma radiation is light.

Explanation:

One Alpha particle is the helium nucleus, two protons and two neutrons, with mass of #6.644xx10^(−24)g#. One beta particle is an electron with mass #9.109xx10^(−28) g)#. Th gamma radiation is a radiation very strong withb the enrgy abouy #10^19 Hz#.
