Lithium 9 nucleus destabilized form
Nuclear structure of

Lithium 9 

(half life = 178.3 s). Move mouse on image for Lithium 9 nucleus destabilized form.

Blue toruses = 9 protons
Red toruses = 6 nuclear electrons

Atomic number of Li (3) = protons (9) - nuclear electrons (6)

Lithium 9 decays by electron emission (from the left side) of Lithium 9 destabilized form to Be 9 (stable) nucleus.
