Carbon 16 nuclear structure
Nuclear structure of

Carbon 16 

isotope (half life = 0.747 s). Move mouse on image for Carbon 16 nuclear structure decay form

Blue toruses = 16 protons
Red toruses = 10 nuclear electrons

Atomic number of C (6) = protons (16) - nuclear electrons (10)

Carbon 16 decays by electron emission (left side on decay form) of Carbon 16 decay form via N16 transitional

with delayed neutron emission of N16 trans to Nitrogen 15 (stable) isotope

Carbon 15 nucleus Carbon 17 nucleus




Decay of Carbon 16 nuclei by electron emission. The result of losing nuclear electron crowded out is a Nitrogen 15 stable nucleus.
