A process in which an unstable atomic nucleus loses energy is known as radioactive process. It is also known as radioactive decay and the element which is unstable is known as radioactive element. Energy is released by the emission of the radiations. As a result of this radioactive decay, two types of atoms are produced; one is parent nuclide and the other is daughter nuclide. You can take the example of carbon-14 atom (the "parent"), which emits radiation and is transformed to a nitrogen-14 atom (the "daughter").
