What is the charge and mass of a β-particle? From which part of the atom are β-particles emitted?

Answer :

β - particles are nothing but highly energetic electrons. These rays are emitted straight from the nucleus.
These β - rays are formed, during radioactivity by breaking of neutron into a proton and an electron. The proton is retained in the nucleus while electron is rejected in the form of β - rays.
