Why are elements that break apart called unstable?

because in the process of emitting alpha rays they become stable or change into other elements by emitting gamma particles.


Is it possible the daughter element is parent to other elements and further decay in daughter elements is possible why?

An unstable element may break down into one or more unstable elements, so they can in turn decay. It's possible because there is no reason why it wouldn't be possible, no reason to assume that when something unstable breaks down, all pieces are stable.


How does uranium break?

Which atom has the greatest amount of electrical charge in its nucleus?

Among the elements that occur in nature, it's Uranium, with 92 protons in the nucleus. Small amounts of atoms with higher atomic numbers are produced in particle accelerators. Their nuclei are unstable, and break down into nuclei with lower atomic numbers.


Can you make your water break naturally?

Your water will break naturally. To induce it would be to artificially break it.

Is radioactive waste biodegradeable?

Yes. In fact, degrading is what causes the radiation. Unstable isotopes break down into stable elements and the "excess" particles are released as radiation.


Something that will break down naturally?

Something that will break down naturally is called bio-degradable.
