IC electrons are monoenergetic and have much lower energies than electrons ejected from a nucleus undergoing negatron decay. 7. a) 222 b) None of the radionuclides between 238U and 222Rn are gaseous, so they are much less likely to be ingested. c) 222 86 d) the 4n+2 decay series ends with 206Pb Rn is a member of the 4n+2 decay series which starts with 238U.
