Isotopes of Hydrogen and Properties of Radiation


Isotopes are the atoms of an element with different numbers of neutrons. They have the same proton number, but different mass numbers.

Three isotopes of hydrogen:

Hydrogen-1: Nucleus: 0 neutron, 1 proton. 1 electron orbiting. Hydrogen-2: Nucleus: 1 neutron, 1 proton. 1 electron orbiting. Hydrogen-3: Nucleus: 1 proton, 2 neutrons. 1 electron orbiting. (

Nuclear radiation

Alpha, beta and gamma radiation.

Alpha radiation

Alpha radiation consists of alpha particles. An alpha particle is identical to the nucleus of a helium atom,
