Radioactivity & Nuclear Reactions Revision Notes Index

1. Atomic structure and isotopes fundamental particle knowledge needed to understand radioactivity

2. What is Radioactivity? Why does it happen? How do we know there 3 types of emitted radiation?

3. Detecting radioactivity, measurement, radiation dose units, ionising radiation sources - radioactive materials, background radiation

4. Alpha, beta & gamma radiation - properties of 3 types of radioactive nuclear emission & symbols - dangers of radioactive emissions - health and safety issues and ionising radiation

5. The uses of radioactive isotopes emitting alpha, beta (+/) or gamma radiation in industry and medicine

6. The half-life of a radioisotope - how long does material remain radioactive? implications!, uses of decay data and half-life values - archaeological radiocarbon dating, dating ancient rocks

7. What actually happens to the nucleus in alpha and beta radioactive decay and why? nuclear equations! - the production of radioisotopes - artificial sources of radioactive-isotopes - use of a cyclotron

8. Nuclear fusion reactions and the formation of 'heavy elements' by bombardment techniques

9. Nuclear Fission Reactions, nuclear power as an energy resource
