  • B has shorter mean life as is greater for B.

14 Which one of the following cannot emit radiation and why?

Excited nucleus, excited electron.


  • Excited electron because energy of electronic energy levels is in the range of, only not in MeV.

  • As -radiation has energy in MeV.

15 In pair annihilation, an electron and a positron destroy each other to produce gamma radiation. How is the momentum conserved?


  • photons are produced which move in opposite directions to conserve momentum.
