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.
In this nuclear chemistry activity, learners complete 7 problems in which they write the chemical equations for different nuclear processes. Answers provided.
In this nuclear chemistry worksheet, learners evaluate data from concentration experiments on radioactive iodine. They graph the data, determine radioactive decay and half life for the element.
Eleventh graders study the different areas of nuclear chemistry.  For this energy and critical thinking lesson students study radiation, nuclear energy and weapons then divide into groups and create a poster.
By completing this learning exercise, your advanced chemists will receive valuable practice in determining amounts of materials during radioactive decay. If you teach AP chemistry courses, this will be an appropriate resource for reinforcing their grasp of this concept.
In this nuclear chemistry worksheet, students solve nine problems about half life, positron emission, nuclear fission and nuclear fusion.
In this nuclear chemistry worksheet, students are given the biological effects of nuclear radiation. They are also given a list of uses of nuclear chemistry and Einstein's theory of special relativity to calculate the energy change in three nuclear reactions.
In this energy changes, rates of reactions and nuclear chemistry instructional activity, students solve 14 problems to review concepts about endothermic and exothermic reactions, heat of combustion, heat of reactions, enthalpy, kinetic and potential energy and nuclear reactions.
In this nuclear chemistry worksheet, high schoolers solve nine decay problems. They determine what forms in each problem given the radioactive element.
Written for an advanced chemistry college course, this exam queries takers on nuclear chemistry topics. Short answer, true or false, labeling, and problem-solving questions are all included. Pupils also are required to draw molecular structures. 
As a comprehensive review guide for a chemistry midterm exam, this lists concepts to study and provides problem-solving practice. The worksheet is applicable to most introductory chemistry courses. Please review it to make sure that all of the topics included were taught in your class.
In this half-life instructional activity, students use a given table of half lives, mass, time and amount of original sample to solve for unknowns in nine given half-life problems.
Students examine concepts of nuclear chemistry. They compare and contrast the topics of nuclear fission and nuclear fision. They predict the outcome of reactions based on the types of emissions and reactants.
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.
Examples #3 - 5, a continuation of a previous set of examples, can be used to teach advanced chemistry learners how to calculate values related to radioactive decay. Use the first set in class to teach the concepts, then send this set as a homework assignment.
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.
As your advanced chemistry learners are introduced to nuclear radiation, this resource will reinforce their comprehension. They are asked to predict the type of radiation for twelve different radiation equations.
In this nuclear chemistry worksheet, students answer ten questions about radioactive decay, half life, electron capture and alpha emission.
