Hon Chemistry 11-15-12 Radioactive Decay

HON CHEMISTRY: Can you guess what it is?/ It’s a picture of uranium ore under UV light. Cool, huh! Here’s the lecture from Thursday on the properties of radioactive nuclides and the types of radioactive decay. It also includes how to write nuclear equations. Don’t forget to memorize the nuclear symbols for alpha particles, beta particles (electrons), positrons, neutrons, and protons. Not nearly as bad as polyatomic ions, huh?!?

Let’s continue playing with half-life tomorrow! Calculators ready!!
