radioactive decay

What elements results if one of the neutrons is in a nitrogen neucleus is converted by radioactive decay into a proton?


The atomic number goes from 7 to 8, while the atomic weight stays the same. An electron (beta-) is emitted from the nucleus. Actually, this process does not happen for N-14 because the nucleus is stable. It does occur with N-16 and N-17, which convert to O-16 and O-17, respectively.
