I. Radioactivity - Process where the nucleus of an atom releases energy and particles Neutrons and/or Protons.

A. Marie Curie (1867-1934) Isolated radioactive elements.

(Radium, Polonium, Thorium)

B. Heavier elements and most Isotopes tend to be radioactive.

C. Radioactive uses

1. Medical: Killing tumors, x-rays, MRI’s

2. Dating (Not your Girlfriend!)

to find out the age of substances (C14, O18)

D. Geiger Counter – used to detect radioactivity.

= new element

= original element

E. Radioactive Decay = Time required for Half of a particular element to change to a more stable atom.

**THIS IS KNOWN AS HALF-LIFE**

1. Uranium half-life = 4.47 billion years!

2. Carbon-14 eventually decay’s into “Normal” Carbon-12.
