This worksheet begins with the students completing a table of the types of radioactivity: alpha particles, beta particles, gamma particles, electron capture, positron emission, and neutron emission. Then, the speed, source and behavior in an electric field and magnetic field are investigated for some radiation. Lastly, penetrative ability of various types of radiation are also discussed.
Key Words: alpha ray, beta ray, gamma ray, positron, neutron, radioactivity
cation + learning's teaching materials and assessments are thoughtful and focused. All materials were written for (and are currently used) in my high school chemistry classroom; however, many concepts are cross-curricular and may be useful in other science classes and grade levels.
Thank you for viewing (and hopefully purchasing!) cation + learning’s teaching materials and assessments.
