Day 2: Calculating Radioactive Decay

Unit 2: Unit 3-Nuclear Chemistry
Lesson 5 of 10

Objective: SWBAT Compare and contrast nuclear processes (fission, fusion and radioactive decay) in terms of changes in subatomic particles and mass and type of energy emitted.

Big Idea: After learning about the types of decay, students will practice determining daughter isotopes that are formed during alpha, beta and gamma decay.
