How do the mass and size of an alpha particle compare with mass and size of beta particle?
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. ...
Asked in Physics, Chemistry, The Difference Between
What is the difference between particle and mass?
Particle is piecewise, particle may come in many size and many mass content. Mass is measuring of matter using scale (kg or Pound or whatever). Mass can be count as fraction but particle always integer. ...

How is mass affected by the loss of an alpha particle?
The mass of an alpha particle is four atomic mass units, therefore the loss of an alpha particle decreases the parent nuclide's atomic mass number by four. ...
What change in mass number occurs when a radioactive atom emits an alpha particle a beta particle a gamma particle?
4 from the alpha. Betas have negligible mass and gammas have no mass.

Which particle has the least mass alpha particle beta particle proton neutrons?
Beta has the least mass. Sorted in order: beta: mass ~1/1800 proton: mass ~1 neutron: mass ~1+1/1800 alpha: mass ~4 ...
What is an electron neutron and protron?
An electron is the particle in an atom which is negatively charged and has no mass. A neutron is the particle in an atom which has no charge but a mass of 1 and a proton is the particle in an atom which has a positive charge and a mass of 1. ...
Asked in Particle Physics
How do you call a subatomic particle that has no mass and a negative charge?
No such particle exists. All particles with charge also have mass -- no exceptions. Every particle with zero mass also has zero charge -- no exceptions. ...
Asked in Chemistry
Why does the mass of an atom not change when beta particle is emitted?
Because he beta particle has a negatively charged ion particle, so the atomic mass does not change at all ...
Which subatomic particle has the smallest mass alpha particle neutron electron proton?
The electron has by far the smallest mass.
