Hon Chemistry 11-22-19 Properties of Radioactive Isotopes, Pt. 2 & Radioactive Decay

HON CHEMISTRY: Can you guess what it is?/ It’s a picture of uranium ore under UV light. Cool, huh! Here’s our discussion on the rest of the properties of radioactive nuclides and the types of radioactive decay.

Great job on writing writing nuclear equations to represent radioactive decay! 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?!?

Also, 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 after Thanksgiving! Calculators ready!!
