Uranium-238 undergoes nuclear decay. Therefore uranium-238 will
change into a different particle altogether.
wHEN RADIUM-226 DECAYS TO FORM RADON-222, THE RADIUM NUCLEAS EMITS AN
Alpha particle
Carbon-14 forms nitrogen-14 by
beta decay.
Alpha-emitting substances can be a serious health hazard if
they are inhaled or eaten
Which of the following is not a step in the Geiger counter?
Magnets cause The ions to conduct electricity
In a water solution , HCl and NaOH react to form H2O AND NaCl. Radium-226 undergoes alpha decay to form radon-222. The temp of both of these reactions is increased.
The rate of the nuclear reaction will increase, but the rate of the chemical reaction remains thee same.
Which of the following is not an example of transmutation?
Uranium-238 is bombarded with a neutron to produce uranium-239
when curium 242 is bombarded with an alpha particle, two products are formed, one of which is a neutron.What's the other product?
Californium 246
The main purpose of a pArticle accelerator is to
magnetize small particles
In general the nucleus of a small atom is stable. Therfore over very short distances,
the strong nuclear force is much greater than the electric force
