Hon Chemistry 11-30-17 Properties of Radioactive Isotopes & 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 for Thursday on the properties of radioactive nuclides and the types of radioactive decay. bEGIN WATCHING THE VODCAST AT 5:23 MINUES.

This lesson includes info on 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?!?

Great start on half-life problems today! I love the way you were able to figure them out yourselves!! Let’s play with them some more tomorrow! Calculators ready!!

  1. This week I would rate myself a 4/5. I have kept up with my work and I have given myself enough time to do it so far. However, today I was a bit confused with nuclear formulas. Hopefully with practice I will better comprehend the concept. Also, I have struggled with taking notes as fast as the recording speaks and I fear I might have missed something. But when I go back and watch the recording again closer to the test, I will probably catch any information I originally missed.

  2. Triumph because I am not failing chemistry, and it’s been clicking! Also, struggle because tonight’s homework was the struggle. Hopefully, I will get it soon…

  3. I rate myself a 3/5 this week because although I did really good about taking notes, I haven’t been very proactive in working on homework that is not immediately due the next day. I am still unfortunately in a break mindset so I keep telling myself “Oh you have all weekend” when in reality I should have started at least a day or two ago. I understand this week’s lessons relatively well and am looking forward to ending this semester strong (good strong or bad strong has yet to be determined).

  4. This week I would rate myself a 3/5. I have taken notes in class, and I have paid attention. On the other hand, when it is time to do my homework, I have waited too long and I have had to stayed up late this week. Look how late I made this post! Next week I will be sure to be a good student and to finish off the semester strong.

  5. This week I struggled In everything. The test was not so good and the lesson was confusing. However, I seem to understand the concept more now.
