Nitrogen 17 nuclear structure
Nuclear structure of

Carbon 17 

isotope (half life = 193 ms). Move mouse on image for Nitrogen 17 (half life = 4.173 s)

Blue toruses = 17 protons
Red toruses = 11 nuclear electrons

Atomic number of C (6) = protons (17) - nuclear electrons (11)

Carbon 17 decays by electron emission (from a side position, not indicated) of Carbon 17 to Nitrogen 17 (half life = 4.173 s).

Nitrogen 17 decays by electron emission (from a side position, not indicated) of Nitrogen 17 to transitional Oxygen 17 and

subsequently a neutron emission of transitional (activated) Oxygen 17 decay form producing Oxygen 16 stable nucleus.

Carbon 17 nucleus decay by electron emission results instable Nitrogen 17 nucleus crowded with nuclear electrons yet. Another electron splitted off from nuclear torus rod, but the activated, otherwise stable O17 eject a neutron promptly and stabilized as O16.
