Help plzzz

Besides the major types of radioactive decay, there are two others: positron emission and electron capture.
• Compare and contrast positrons with electrons.
• Explain how positron emission works and how it causes transmutations.
• Explain how electron capture works and how it causes transmutations.
• Compare the transmutations caused by positron emissions and electron capture.
