Cu64 (Half life=22.8 hours) decay by beta emission (38%), beta+ emission (19%) and electron capture (43%). write the decay product and calculate Half lives for each of the decay process. [IIT 2002]

SOLUTION:
(1):
(2)  Above are parallel reactions occurring from Cu64
T1 T2 and T3 are the corresponding partial half lives and also K= K1 + K2 + K3 (for parallel reaction)
