Matter & Atoms

At a specific instant, emission of radioactive compound is deflected in a magnetic field. The compound can emit

  1. Electrons
  2. Protons
  3. He2+
  4. Neutrons

The emission at instant can be

  1. 1, 2, 3, 4
  2. 1, 2, 3
  3. 2, 3
  4. 4

Answer

Electrons, protons and helium ions are deflected in magnetic field. So, the compound can emit electrons, protons and He2+.

The correct option is B.
