Write and balance equations for the three forms of radioactive decay.
6.1
  1. Nuclear Notation
  2. Law of Radioactive Decay applet - As soon as the applet is started with the yellow button, the atomic nuclei will begin to "decay" This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  3. Java applet illustrating Radioactive Decay Series for several substances
Solve half-life problems [decay constant: k=0.693/T(1/2); nuclear decay: Af =Aoekt].
6.2
  1. Half-Life applet - choose any of sixteen isotopes and observe a representation of the decay accompanied by a graph This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  2. Radioactive Half-Life - includes a link to an interactive Radioactive Decay Calculation
Explain dating methods using carbon-14 or uranium.
6.3
  1. Carbon Dating
  2. Radioactive Dating
  3. Clocks in the Rocks
Investigate the concept of half-life.
6.4
  1. Half-Life applet - choose any of sixteen isotopes and observe a representation of the decay accompanied by a graph This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  2. Radioactive Half-Life - includes a link to an interactive Radioactive Decay Calculation
Explain how particles behave like waves.
6.5
  1. Photoelectric Effect - a Java applet which simulates an experiment for the determination of the Planck constant and the work function This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  2. Wave-Particle Duality and the Photoelectric Effect
Distinguish between coherent and incoherent light.
6.6
  1. Quantum Properties of Light - including lasers and coherent light
Recognize how the quantum theory explains the photoelectric effect.
6.7
  1. Photoelectric Effect - a Java applet which simulates an experiment for the determination of the Planck constant and the work function This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  2. Wave-Particle Duality and the Photoelectric Effect
Investigate the history and current events associated with nuclear and radioactive science.
6.8
Identify the parts of an atom.
6.9
  1. Nuclear Particles including Data for a Scale Model of an Atom
Describe the properties and location of subatomic particles.
6.10
  1. How can we see the structure of atom? This java applet allows a simulation of the same situation as in Rutherford's experiment. (Don't judge the physics of this Japanese physicist by his spelling) This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  2. Use this java applet to play with colored balls (just like Quarks). Nori presents a variation on the same subject in this applet. This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
Describe three forms of radioactivity.
6.11
Distinguish between nuclear fission and nuclear fusion.
6.12
Distinguish between the Bohr model and the quantum model of an atom.
6.13
Explain the changes in atomic number or mass number for each form of radioactivity.
6.14
Discuss transmutation and transuranium.
6.15
Examine the properties of lasers.
6.16
