Magic # of protons: 2,8,20,28,50,82

Magic # of neutrons: 2,8,20,38,50,82,126, 184

Using general trends, predict the stability of the following nuclei.

Either STABLE or RADIOACTIVE

A)arsenic-82

B)calcium-40

C)radium-233

D)potassium-44

E)zinc-64

(I figured B would be stable because it falls under the magic numbers list. Also I think C would be radioactive because it does not seem to fit with the others)
