Fluorine 17 transition form
Nuclear structure of

Fluorine 17 

(half life = 64.49 s). Move mouse on image for Fluor 17 nucleus transition form.

Blue toruses = 17 protons
Red toruses = 8 nuclear electrons

Atomic number of F (9) = protons (17) - nuclear electrons (8)

Fluorine 17 transform by positron emission from a source of a photon decomposition,
while electron component of the photon captured by Fluorine 17 transition form, producing Oxygen 17 (stable).

Electron capture is likely to occur on the central proton.
