fission & fussion

chapter 16

This can occur naturally or it can be controlled by scientist and enginees to produce electricity nuclear energy
this has 6 neutrons c-12 = carbon 12
this has 8 neutrons c-14 = carbon 14
what is the atomic mass that is on the periodic table for carbon 12.01
what is the atomic number of carbon 6
large atoms - split apart when neutrons are slammed into radioactive elements uses nuclear reactors to produce electricity like atomic bombs fission
smaller atoms fuse together uses fuels like stars and hydrogen bombs fusion
represents particle or energy that are emitted from the nucleus of an atom can be dangerous but if used properly can be beneficial especially in the medical profession nuclear radiation
energy emitted with no mass and no charge that travels at the speed of light y = gamma rays
a particle with a +2 charge that is made of 2 protons and 2 neutrons alpha particle = a
a particle with a mass of 0 and -1 charge that is emitted at high speed beta particle = b
alpha particle, beta particle, and gamma rays are examples of what radiation emitted
