Radioactivity , property exhibited by certain types of matter of emitting energy and subatomic particles spontaneously.
Many nuclei are radioactive; that is, they decompose by emitting particles and in doing so, become a different nucleus.

Radioactivity refers to the particles which are emitted from nuclei as a result of nuclear instability. Because the nucleus experiences the intense conflict between the two strongest forces in nature, it should not be surprising that there are many nuclear isotopes which are unstable and emit some kind of radiation. The most common types of radiation are called alpha , beta , and gamma radiation, but there are several other varieties of radioactive decay. Radioactive decay rates are normally stated in terms of their half-lives , and the half-life of a given nuclear species is related to its radiation risk. The different types of radioactivity lead to different decay paths which transmute the nuclei into other chemical elements.
Radioactive decay occurs when an unstable atomic nucleus loses energy by emitting energy in the form of emitted particles or electromagnetic waves, called radiation. Isotopes are atoms of the same element thereby having the same number of protons which differ in the number of neutrons in their nucleus. Some isotopes of a given element are more unstable than others, causing a nuclear reaction which releases energy to achieve a more stable nuclear configuration. There are many types of emmitted particles and radiation that radioisotopes produce when they decay. The types we will discuss here are: alpha, beta, and gamma listed in increasing ability to penetrate matter. Alpha decay is seen only in heavier elements greater than atomic number 52, tellurium.
Radioactivity , property exhibited by certain types of matter of emitting energy and subatomic particles spontaneously. It is, in essence, an attribute of individual atomic nuclei. An unstable nucleus will decompose spontaneously, or decay, into a more stable configuration but will do so only in a few specific ways by emitting certain particles or certain forms of electromagnetic energy. Radioactive decay is a property of several naturally occurring elements as well as of artificially produced isotopes of the elements. The rate at which a radioactive element decays is expressed in terms of its half-life ; i. The product of a radioactive decay process—called the daughter of the parent isotope—may itself be unstable, in which case it, too, will decay. The process continues until a stable nuclide has been formed.

What Is Radioactivity? How Does Radiation Affect Humans? What causes radioactivity?
Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about nuclear changes of matter and related technological applications. Construct an argument to compare and contrast mechanisms and characteristics of radioactive decay. During beta minus decay the beta particle is an electron, during beta plus decay, the beta particle is a positron. The atomic number for isotopes of a given element is the same but the mass number is different.
Hamilton, Joseph H. Last reviewed: September A phenomenon resulting from an instability of the atomic nucleus in certain atoms whereby the nucleus experiences a spontaneous but measurably delayed nuclear transition or transformation with the resulting emission of radiation. The most commonly found types of radioactivity are alpha Fig. Each is characterized by the particular type of nuclear radiation which is emitted by the transforming parent nucleus.
У Бринкерхоффа подогнулись колени. Он не мог понять, почему Мидж всегда права. Он не заметил отражения, мелькнувшего за оконным стеклом рядом с. Крупная фигура возникла в дверях директорского кабинета.

Беккер шел, низко опустив голову. Халохот прокручивал в голове дальнейшие события.
