Keyword Definition

Alpha decay is a type of radioactive decay in which an atomic nucleus emits an alpha particle (two protons and two neutrons) and thereby transforms (or 'decays') into an atom with a mass number 4 less and atomic number 2 less. For example:

     222Rn → 218Po + 4He (half life = 3.8 days)
