Challenge your advanced chemistry class with this handout. Learners will review all aspects of nuclear chemistry, from writing balanced nuclear equations to determining half-life. They perform calculations and read and label graphs. This assignment draws upon every skill that your class has practiced during a nuclear chemistry unit.
This convenient handout will save you and your chemistry aces time. You will not need to prepare notes, and they will not need to consult their texts for future reference. Detailed notes on radioactive decay are provided and learners are taught how to read related graphs and calculate mass over time. Three examples are supplied to complete together in class.
What a comprehensive summary of introductory nuclear physics! Although the delivery is dry, the information is valuable and several "Check for Understanding" slides are interspersed throughout to reinforce learning. As a result of viewing these slides, future physicists will be able to determine the charge of a nucleus, differentiate between alpha and beta particles, describe background radiation and Geiger counters, and more! These 90 slides can provide support for an entire nuclear energy unit for your high school physics class.
Opening with a set of notes, this resource defines the different types of radiation. Eight examples are then listed so that chemistry pros can practice naming radiation types. This compact, but comprehensive, handout will act as a valuable reference page for your class. Use it when introducing radioactivity.
A list of questions that will test the understanding of nuclear chemistry. There are some definitions of terminology required and then generic equations that clarify nuclear transmutation. Pupils should also be able to describe the differences and effects of radiation, half life, and chain reactions. Here you will find a comprehensive questionnaire that covers the aspects of this topic in a varied way.
