This book answers many questions for the student, teacher, and practitioner as to the origins, properties, detection and measurement, and applications of radioactivity. Written at a level that most students and teachers can appreciate, it includes many calculations that students and teachers may use in class work. The acclaimed satirist and author of Pest Control begins a new series of comic mystery novels featuring FM classic rock radio DJ Rick Shannon, who finds himself knee deep in a swamp of mystery and murder in Mississippi. Paperback, pages Published /5. A classic work, Nobel Laureate Ernest Rutherford describes his pioneering experiments with radioactivity. Includes a discussion of radioactive substances, examinations of the ionization theory of gases, methods of measurement, the nature of radiation, and the rate of emission of energy. Also includes properties of radiation, the continuous production of radioactive matter, radioactive.

Radioactive decay (also known as nuclear decay, radioactivity, radioactive disintegration or nuclear disintegration) is the process by which an unstable atomic nucleus loses energy by radiation.A material containing unstable nuclei is considered of the most common types of decay are alpha decay, beta decay, and gamma decay, all of which involve emitting one or more particles.

Chapter 3—Radioactivity Beta particles are electrons or positrons (electrons with positive electric charge, or antielectrons).Beta decay occurs when, in a nucleus with too many protons or too many neutrons, one of the protons or neutrons is transformed into the other. Almost everyone and everything in the world is radioactive, from bananas in the kitchen to the bricks and concrete in homes, as well as most things that can be eaten, worn, played with, or touched every day. Radiation can be found everywhere since the universe began and Earth first formed. But what does radioactive really mean? "Radioactivity" explains the science behind radiation, from the. Radioactivity Radioactive (unstable) nuclei are generally believed to be man made, however many unstable isotopes are produced in large quantities by “natural” occurring processes. The decay always follows the same pattern described by radioactive decay law.
