# Group Displacement Law Worksheet

Group displacement law, series, units, number of $\alpha, \beta$

Group displacement law states that on the emission of an alpha-particle the new element lies two columns left in the periodic table and mass number decreases by 4 units, and on the emission of a beta-particle the new element lies one column right in the periodic table and mass number remains the same.

Some of the important questions and answers related to group displacement law are listed below:-
