on slide 61, Decay Nomenclature, on the second set of equations, beta decay, I think you might need to show the loss/gain of the neutron in the equation; like you did with the proton. A-1 and A+1 to show the nucleon number has changed.

Ben, I'm showing slide 45 for Decay Nomenclature. The loss/gain of a neutron or proton is shown when the charge on the product changes. We don't show the neutron separately as it is not emitted. We only show positrons, electrons and neutrinos separately.

yup, makes sense.
