Review of the Types of Reactions

Let's review the types of reactions we have studied:

Alpha Emission (α) 42He is produced (a Helium Nucleus)
Beta Emission(β) 0-1e is produced (an electron).
Gamma Emission(γ) 00γ is produced.
Positron Emission 01e is produced.
Electron Capture 0-1e is absorbed from the electron cloud.
Transmutation Two isotopes react or a neutron (10n) is absorbed.
