Chemistry 1-20-20 Properties of Radioactive Isotopes & Radioactive Decay

CHEMISTRY: Great job today with nuclear equations! Today we finished talking about the properties of radioactive nuclides, and then it was all about types of nuclear decay and nuclear equations and arrows and where to put them! ๐Ÿ™‚

HOMEWORK UPDATE FOR THURSDAY (Due Friday): Pg. 672 – 674; 21, 26 โ€“ 33, 40, 42

So how did you do with the nuclear equations today? Make sure you know what side of the arrow to put the particle on! Also, make sure you memorize the nuclear symbols for alpha particles, beta particles (electrons), positrons, neutrons, and protons – those are just as important as the arrow!
