A beta particle is either an electron or a positron emitted by an atomic nucleus in beta decay, which is a type of radioactive decay. The phenomenon of beta decay involves a c…hange within the atomic nucleus of an atom. One of two reactions may occur, and they involve the change of a neutron into a proton, or a proton into a neutron. When a neutron changes into a proton, we call that beta minus decay. The change of a proton into a neutron is called beta plus decay. In beta minus decay, an electron is ejected from the nucleus, and in beta plus decay, a positron is ejected from the nucleus.

A beta particle is two particles emitted in the form of radioactive decay called beta decay. It is either an electron and an electron anti neutrino, which is emitted in beta- …decay, or a positron and an electron neutrino, which is emitted in beta+ decay. Use the link below to the related question on beta decay to help you sort it out.
There is a difference between beta emitters and beta particles. In situations where an atomic nucleus exhibits nuclear instability due to too many neutrons for the numbe…r of protons or vice versa, that nucleus may undergo beta decay. It the decay event occurs, that atom is considered a beta emitter. The emitted particle is the beta particle. That's the difference. (There are two different beta particles, so check the articles on beta decay to get the scoop.)
No, beta decay isn't the same as a beta particle, but a beta particle is emitted in beta decay. There are two kinds of beta decay, and they are beta minus and beta …plus decay. In these decay events, an electron and a positron (anti-electron) will be emitted from a nucleus, respectively. Beta decay is the event, and the beta particle is a product of the event.

Electrons are identical to beta particle since beta particles ARE electrons with high energy content that can ionize atoms it come across.
Betaminus (β-) particles are the same as electrons . Betaplus (β+) particles are the same a positrons
A beta particle is a negative electron. A positive electron is a Positron.
An electron or a positron.
The atomic nucleus can emit beta particles (beta radiation). A neutron emits a beta particle when it decays into a proton, and anti-neutrino, and an electron (which becomes th…e beta particle).
because the total enegy of the decay is carried by beta particle and the nutrino.
These particles are more dangerous than alpha rays. They are negatively charged electrons . They have -1 unit charge and zero mass.

Beta radiation is a negatively charged electron which both penetrates and ionizes fairly well. Alpha is a helium nucleus with 2 protons and 2 neutrons (so a +2 charge) and is …very ionizing but not very penetrating.
They are products of nuclear decay. Used for outlining internal organs through X-rays.
The equation for nuclear disintegration resulting in release beta particle is 32P+0 e→32Si. The answer choice that matches this equation would be correct.
