Lithium 11 nucleus decay form
Nuclear structure of

Lithium 11 

(half life = 8.59 ms). Move mouse on image for Lithium 11 decay form.

Blue toruses = 11 protons
Red toruses = 8 nuclear electrons

Atomic number of Li (3) = protons (11) - nuclear electrons (8)

Lithium 11 decays by electron emission (left side) of Lithium 11 decay form to transitional Be11 and

trans Be11 decays by neutron emission of trans Be11 decay to Beryllium 10 (half life = 1.51x106 y) nucleus.

Beryllium 10 decays by electron emission (left side) of Beryllium 10 decay form to Boron 10 (stable)
