Nuclear 2

Greats of Radioactivity and Radiation

More Greats in Radiation

The Hadron Collider, Geneva

27 km long, 100 meters deep!

Nuclear Accelerators use high voltages to accelerate charged particles and big magnets to bend the particles. Video:

Answers to the above reactions:

3Li6, 1H1, 0n1, 82Pb206, 82Pb212

Radioactivity is a Random Event!
The chance of a nucleus decaying into another nucleus is totally independent of any other decay event. Only a large number of nuclei will average out to give the "half-life".
