Radiation

HideShow resource information

There are three main types of radiation that can be emitted by radioactive particles. They are called alpha, beta, and gamma. All three types of radiation come from the nucleus of the atom. All three types of radiation will cause ionisation, but they behave slightly differently, because of the way they are made up.
