When a proton is released, one element changes into another. What is this process called?
When an proton is emitted from a nucleus the decay is called proton emission or proton reactivity. A proton emission follows a positron emission (
The p+ is indicating a free proton
The carbon-10 afterwards gets converted to boron-10 as a result of positron emission
10-Boron is stable so it does not further decay
