Since it is a photon, its rest mass is zero. Its relativistic mass, of course, will depend on its energy. Typical gamma rays have energies over 100 keV, so their mass (their relativistic mass, that is) can be expressed as 100 keV/c².
0, gamma particle are high energy photons.
Gamma rays haven't mass and dimension.
The option 'c' is correct answer.
Of course alpha is a particle nothing but the helium nucleus, beta is also a particle which is fast moving electron. But gamma is not a particle. It is electromagnetic radiation. So gamma photon. But photon has zero rest mass.
4 from the alpha. Betas have negligible mass and gammas have no mass.
The mass and size of an alpha particle compare with the masa and size of beta particle in the sense that the alpha particle is significantly larger in both size and mass that the beta and gamma particles. This is why it is called the alpha particle.
The alpha particle basically has the mass of a helium atom, since it is a helium nucleus. The beta particle has the mass of an electron - a beta particle is either an electron or an anti-electron. The gamma ray has no rest mass, since it moves at the speed of light. However, it can have a fairly high energy, and therefore an associated mass. The mass varies in this case; that is, gamma rays can have different energies, and therefore different masses.
The emission of gamma particles does not change the atomic mass number, only alpha and beta particles do.
A gamma particle is an electron. It has a -1 charge.
Alpha because it has a mass of 4
γ (gamma) is a photon.
alpha is a heavy particle not very penetrating radiation. Gamma is a ray not a particle and is very highly penetrating.
Gamma is electromagnetic radiation. The gamma particles are called photons
All nuclear decay has some kind of particle or particles associated with it. Even the metastable decay of 4399Tcm, a gamma at 142.7 Kev, is considered to be a particle emission, because a gamma is a photon, and a photon is an elementary particle, per our understanding of modern quantum mechanics and particle physics, even though it has no mass at rest state.
No. Gamma rays are waves, as part of the electromagnetic spectrum, and have no mass at all. A gamma ray is a form of electromagnetic energy. As such, it is said to have a rest mass of zero. A gamma ray, being electromagnetic energy, has some "particle-like" properties, as does other photonic radiation. But it moves at the speed of light in a vacuum and is generally said to be massless.
The gamma ray is not a particle but is just an EM wave that transmits energy.
Gamma radiation emits a high energy photon. Photons behave similar to particles and similar to waves, but it isn't really either. Basically, there is no particle with mass. It only is emiting energy (which is carried by the photon).

The gamma particle has the deepest penetration.
A gamma particle travels at the speed of light in vacuum, which is 3 x 108 m s-1.
