Beta decay, Biology

Beta decay is the type of radioactive decay in which the radioisotope emits a little negatively-charged and fast-moving particle from its nucleus. A beta particle is almost similar in the charge, size, and speed to an electron and is produced when a neutron in the radioisotope's nucleus converts to a proton.
