its actually, alpha particles, beta particles, and gamma rays
2. When nuclear radiation enters the tube of a Geiger counter, it the excited atoms of the gas contained in the tube. (this type deposits all energy into a single atom)
3 The particles that make up protons and neutrons and are thought to be basic units of matter are quarks.
8. Answer is: gamma.
Gamma rays contain much more energy (most penetrating) than other waves because they have a greater frequencies.
Gamma rays are the electromagnetic waves with the shortest wavelengths (1 pm), highest frequencies (300 EHz) and highest energy (1,24 MeV).
During gamma emission the nucleus emits radiation without changing its composition, if for example have nucleus with six protons and six neutrons (carbon atom) and after gamma decay there is nucleus with six protons and six neutrons.
9. Answer is: ionizes.
A Geiger counter is an instrument used for detecting and measuring ionizing radiation.
The Geiger counter is filled with an inert gas (noble gases) at low pressure, it conducts electrical charge when a particle or photon of radiation makes the gas conductive by ionization.
For example, it can detect alpha particles.
Alpha particle is nucleus of a helium-4 atom, which is made of two protons and two neutrons.
10. Answer is: quark.
Quark is a type of elementary particle and a fundamental constituent of matter.
Quarks form composite hadrons (protons and neutrons). Protons and neutrons are in the nucleus of an atom.
Hadrons include baryons (protons and neutrons) and mesons.
There are six types of quarks: up, down, strange, charm, bottom, and top.
There are three types of nuclear decay and they are alpha decay, beta decay, and fusion. Your answer is:
alpha ,beta and gamma are nuclear radiation
Alpha particles, Beta particles and Gamma rays
The emission of particles when a radioactive atom decays is called radioactivity.
An atom is radioactive as a result of unstable nucleus. This unstable nucleus of the atom disinintegrates and leads to emission of Alpha particles, Beta particles and gamma rays.
Alpha particles contain 2 protons and 2 neutrons. They are positively charged
Beta particles are negatively charged
Gamma rays are electromagnetic waves with short wavelength
Alpha, Beta, and Gamma Decay
Alpha, Beta, Gamma
alpha, beta, or gamma decay. Each type emits a particle from the nucleus.
