dear sir could you please answer "why would a nucleus disintegrate & form a new nucleus ?"

Expert Answer:

Dear student
All the heavy elements ( z above 82) have unstable nucleus so they disintegrate ( by emission of radiation) to form a new nucleus and thus acquire a stable state.
We hope this clarifies your doubt.
