Nitrogen 14 nuclear structure
Nuclear structure of

Carbon 14 

isotope (half life = 5700 y). Move mouse on image or click for Nitrogen 14 (stable) nuclear structure

Blue toruses = 14 protons
Red toruses = 8 nuclear electrons

Atomic number of C (6) = protons (14) - nuclear electrons (8)

Carbon 14 decays by electron emission of Carbon 14 to Nitrogen 14 (stable) isotope

The ejection of the electron happen from one of the side position of nucleus.

Nuclear structure of Carbon 14 and decay by electron emission result of Nitrogen 14 stable nuclei by decomposition of C14 nuclid.
