Alpha/Beta Emission Simulation 1)  You will need 14 large marshmallows, 1 cotton swab, black and red permanent marker, glue and clear  container large w/lid enough to hold the marshmallows 2)  You will be constructing the nucleus of a nitrogen atom with the marshmallows being the protons and  neutrons.        * add  large + signs on the flat ends of 8 marshmallows using the black maker -  these are the protons        * leave 6 marshmallows unmarked  -  these are the neutrons        * cut off the end of the cotton swab just where the cotton ends on the stick.                Add a negative to this with the red maker - this will be the beta particle        * make a hole in one of the protons, insert the "beta particle" into the hole - turning the proton into a  neutron (+ )
