Chemistry 1-10-12 Applications of Radioactivity, Pt. 2

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!? Click on the link below the pic to learn more from Cedars-Sinai hospital.

Here’s the lecture from Tuesday. Let’s finish the chapter tomorrow!

Chemistry 1-9-12 Half-Life Review & Applications of Radioactivity

CHEMISTRY: Happy Monday! How are you doing with the half-life problems? Some were ok/easy, from last night, but a couple of them, number 28 and 43 (I think) were kind of unusual to think though. Practice them over and over, even if it’s the same problems. The practice will help you learn to think your way through them.

Well, we didn’t get to talk much about applications of radioactive isotopes, so let’s continue that tomorrow. Good luck finishing up the half-life lab. The due date has been changed. Your lab books are due Wednesday.

Hon Chemistry 12-6-11 Applications of Radioactivity

HON CHEMISTRY: Hmmmmm… what do you do when you forget to upload the day’s lesson to You post an old lecture from another year! This actually might turn out to be a good thing – the beginning of this old lecture has some half-life problems practice that might turn out to be useful for you. As for the rest – it doesn’t have everything, but it does have most of the applications that we talked about today in class.

So it turns out there are some pretty useful applications of radioactivity! Let’s finish talking about fission and fusion tomorrow, okay? Oh, and help session tomorrow morning, 7:15ish A.M.
