CHEMISTRY: Now here’s a healthy breakfast! So what do you figure is the half-life of a twinkie? Nooooooooo…..it’s not the same thing! (Even it you do eat it with a Red Bull!)
So how did you like nuclear equations? Make sure you memorize the nuclear symbols for alpha particles, beta particles (electrons), positrons, neutrons, and protons!
Great start on half-life problems! These will be a little different – we thought them through in class, now I want you to take the concepts we talked about and work them. We’ll walk through them again tomorrow in class, I promise, but first, I want you to think through these problems yourselves! You’re a great problem solver!
