...tification of the compound can be made by looking at the atomic number obtained in this case 73 and looking at the element in the periodic table that has an atomic number of 73 in this case Ta

B. beta emission is the loss of an electron which is (beta(0,1) has no mass but a charge of one)
and so W(188,74)----> beta(0,-1) + element
since the ...
