Chemistry unit 1

HideShow resource information
describe alpha radiation
has a charge of 2+, least penetrating and cant pass through a piece of paper
1 of 7
describe beta
high ionising power as iot can pass through as sheet of aluminium, a neutron in tyhe necleus changes to a proton and electron, the electron gets fired out of the necleus so iut has a charge of positive one as there are more protons
2 of 7
decribe gamma
electromagnetic waves most ionising can pass through lead sheet
3 of 7
describe alpha waves with an electromagnetic wave
slow moving and heavy gets attracted towards the negative place
4 of 7
describe beta waves with an electromagnetic wave
light and fast moving gets attracted towards the positive plate bevause it has a negative charge
5 of 7
describe gamma waves with an electromagnetic wave
gamma is uneffected
6 of 7
what is half life
half live is the time taken for a radiactive isotope to decay
7 of 7
