- lose mass
- join with atoms of another element***
- break down to form atoms of another element
- are exposed to to chemical weathering
i think B

  1. Nope. Consider the word "decay", or check your text or google

  2. i think its when the composition of the nucleus changes, and the atom is now a another element.
