Introduction to Nuclidesthe big bang

The big bang theory www.uwaterloo.ca/~cchieh/cact/nuctek/universe.html

Einstein-Wheeler: "Matter tells space how to curve, and space tells matter how to move."

1927 Lemaitre: The universe began with an explosion based on red shift.

Hubble observed the red shift proportional to distance of stars from us. 1964 Penzias and Wilson discovered the cosmic microwave background (CMB) radiation, as due to remnants of big bang.

Depending on the outcome of the observations, the big bang theories will be abandoned, revised or extended to accommodate additional observartions.

What is in the universe?

How did the universe begin?

Where did materials come from?

Can material and energy really inter-convert into each other?

Nuclides

The Big Bang View

All energy (and matter) in the universe concentrates in a region smaller than a marble 12 billions years ago.

It started to expand and cool to a billion K. Elementary particles roamed free in a sea of energy.

Further expansion caused a drop in temperature and confined quarks in neutrons and protons.

Galaxies began to form.

Galaxy clusters

Nuclides

Hubble’s Observation

One method for gauging distance is to observe the apparent brightness of a galaxy.

The red shift shows that the universe is constantly expanding

Nuclides

Cosmologic Matters

Radiation: massless or nearly massless, photons (light) and neutrinos.

Baryonic matter (Nuclides): composed primarily of protons, neutrons and electrons; has essentially no pressure of cosmological importance.

Dark matter: exotic non-baryonic matter that interacts only weakly with ordinary matter; This form of matter also has no cosmologically significant pressure.

Dark energy: a bizarre form of matter, or perhaps a property of the vacuum itself; characterized by a large, negative pressure; a form of matter that can cause the expansion of the universe to accelerate

Nuclides

Nuclides composite particles of nucleons

A nuclideAEZA-mass numberZ-atomic number eg.238U92

Protons and neutrons are bound together into nuclei. Atoms contain a complement of electrons.

A nuclide is a type of atoms whose nuclei have a specific numbers of protons and neutrons.

Nucleons (protons and neutrons) are convenient units to consider nuclear changes, although the standard model considers quarks as basic components.

Like particles, nuclides are energy states, with amounts properties.

Some basic principles are seen for stability of nuclide.

Nuclides

Stable Nuclides

- Stable nuclides remain the same for an indefinite period.
- Some characteristics of stable nuclides:
- Atomic number Z 83, but no stable isotopes for Z = 43 and 61.
- There are 81 elements with 280 stable nuclides.
- Usually there are more neutrons than protons in the nuclei.
- Nuclides with magic number of protons or neutrons are very stable.
- Pairing of nucleons (spin coupling) contributes to nuclide stability.
- Is abundance of a nuclide related to its stability?

Nuclides

Stable Nuclidespairing of nucleons

Two protons or neutrons occupy a quantum state, due to their ½ spin.

Pairing nucleons stabilises nuclides, leading to a large number of stable nuclides with even Z and N.

No stable isotopes for Z = 43 or 61.

No stable isotones with N = 19, 31, 35, 39, 61, 89

More stable isotopes for even Z than odd Z and for even N than odd N

Elements with even Z are more abundant than those with odd Z of comparable mass.

Nuclides

Stable and Radioactive Nuclidesmass and stability of nuclides

Mass and energy are equivalent, E = m c2.

Relative mass is the key for stability of nuclides.

Energy drives changes.

If a system can lower its energy, it will.

Unstable nuclides undergo decay or fission, releasing energy stabilises the system.

Discuss the stability of carbon isotopes.

Nuclides

Stable and Radioactive Nuclidesbinding energy

- The binding energy (BE) of a nuclide is the energy released when the atom is synthesized from the appropriate numbers of hydrogen atoms and neutrons.
- Z H + N n = AEZ + BE
- or ZmH + Nmn = mE + BEwhere mH, mn, and mE are masses of H, n, and AEZ respectively.Eg
- BE = ZmH + Nmn - mE
- BE (3He) = (2*1.007825 + 1.008665 - 3.01603) 931.481 MeV = 7.72 MeV
- BE (4He) = (2*1.007825 + 2*1.008665 - 4.00260) 931.481 MeV = 28.30 MeV

Nuclides

Stable and Radioactive Nuclidesapplication of mass excess (ME)

Like masses, the ME can be used to calculate energy of decay, because the same scale is used for both.

eg:

ME’s of 40Sc21 and 40Ca20 are -20.527 and -34.847 MeV respectively. Estimate the energy of decay for

40Sc2140Ca20 + b+ or 40Sc21 + e–40Ca20solution: Edecay = -20.527 - (-34.847) = 14.32 MeV

Edecay includes 1.02 MeV for the positron-electron pair for b+ decay.
