    So see the graph I print screened below. I have no idea which region you find the beta emitters. Can someone explain this to me?

    It's 3 marks, but I don't really need the answer, I need to actually understand where you find the beta emitters, and alpha emitter.

    Beta emission is the ejection of electrons from the atom. Beta- emission occurs when the atom is neutron heavy with more neutrons than protons. Beta+ emission is the opposite.

    Here's a better graph and explanantion:
