Episode 512: Nuclear Equations
In this learning episode, produced by the Institute of Physics, students look at the decay processes that result in the emission of ionising radiation.
The activities in this learning episode include:
• looking at nuclide notation and N-Z plots
• types of decay processes
• practice questions on notation
• worked examples of equations for alpha, beta and gamma decay
• student questions on nuclear equations
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
