Question
Write the complete decay equation for the given nuclide in the complete $^A_Z\textrm{X}_N$ notation. Refer to the periodic table for values of Z:
$\alpha$ decay of $^{210}\textrm{Po}$, the isotope of polonium in the decay series of $^{238}\textrm{U}$ that was discovered by the Curies. A favorite isotope in physics labs, since it has a short half-life and decays to a stable nuclide.
