Nuclear Chemistry

Nuclear Chemistry Review

QuestionAnswer
Nuclear reactor any of several devices in which a chain reaction is initiated and controlled with the resulting heat typically used for power generation and the neutrons and fission products used for military, experimental, and medical purposes.
gamma ray electromagnetic radiation emitted by radioactive decay and having energies in a range from ten thousand to ten million electron volts
particle accelerator a device, such as a cyclotron or linear accelerator, that accelerates charged subatomic particles or nuclei to high energies
radioactivity spontaneous emission of radiation, either directly from unstable atomic nuclei or as a consequence of a nuclear reaction
nucleon a proton or a neutron, especially as part of an atomic nucleus
bombardment act (or an instance) of subjecting a body or substance to the impact of high-energy particles
alpha particle positively charged particle, indistinguishable from a helium atom nucleus and consisting of two protons and two neutrons
half-life the time required for half the nuclei in a sample of a specific isotopic species to undergo decay
isotope one of two or more atoms having the same atomic number but different mass numbers, due to a different number of neutrons in the nucleus
fission a nuclear reaction in which an atomic nucleus, especially a heavy nucleus such as an isotope of uranium, splits into fragments, usually two fragments of comparable mass, releasing from 100 million to several hundred million electron volts of energy
beta particle a high-speed electron or positron, especially one emitted in radioactive decay
fusion a nuclear reaction in which nuclei combine to form more massive nuclei with the simultaneous release of energy

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
