Question

This electromagnetic wave has a very high penetrating power. It is emitted during the decay of many radioactive isotopes, such as U-238 and I-131. It is a __________ wave. Is it alpha beta gamma or neutron

2 Answer

  • Answer:

    Gamma rays

    Explanation:

    The penetrating power of gamma rays is maximum as compared to beta and alpha rays. Gamma rays are nothing but the photons i.e. the packets of energy. Their energy range lies from kilo electron volts to 8 mega electron volts. It is emitted during the decay of many radioactive isotopes, such as U-238 and I-131. A large amount of energy is produced in decay of uranium 238.

    Hence, the correct option is " gamma rays ".        

  • Answer:

    the correct answer is Gamma
