HON CHEMISTRY: Radioactive isotopes all around! Did you ever dream there were so many applications of radioactivity? This is a pic of a test used to check on blood flow through the heart during a stress test. Fun, huh!?
Great job finishing the chapter! And thanks for being patient with the recordings! Here are the two vodcasts that will wrap up the rest of the notes – the first is on the second part of the discussion on uses of radioactive isotopes, the second is from the discussion on fission and fusion.
How are you doing on studying for the test? It will cover the beginning part of chapter 3 (through average atomic mass), chapter 21, and you will most probably also have a set of chemical formulas to write and name.
For chapter 3, check out the Chapter 3a Stuff to Know & Study Suggestions sheet.
For chapter 21, make sure you practice half-life problems and nuclear equations. Also, make sure you’ve memorize the nuclear symbols for alpha particles, beta particles, positrons, neutrons, and protons. And then there are tons of notes on the conceptual stuff. Properties of radioactivity, people, types of radioactive decay, applications of radioactivity, definitions, definitions, and definitions!
Fission and fusion…
