    An atoms nuclear instability results in the phenomena of radioactivity. A lot of energy is lost due to this radiation causing instability in the atom. Forces that are behind keeping the nuclear intact are the force of attraction and the force of repulsion. These are the forces responsible for keeping the nuclear of atom together.


    1. These are results of nuclear instability.

    2. The rate of decay of nucleus depends on the pressure and temperature around the atom.

    3. The properties of each nucleus is different, including parent nucleus and daughter nucleus.

    I hope this answer helps!😊
