Best Answer: Uranium 239 has 92 protons and 147 neutrons (A-Z). A beta decay results in a neutron transforming into a proton and emitting a beta particle (e-) plus an anti-neutrino. This decay is notated: - n -> p +e- + ν' Where ν' stands for the anti-neutrino.. Beta decay occurs when a neutron essentially spontaneously turns into a proton and emits an electron (beta particle). This results in the atomic number of the original nucleus increasing by one .
