Chem 162-2011 Lecture 24 1 CHEMISTRY 162-2011 LECTURE 24 ANNOUNCEMENTS MISCELLANEOUS Tuesday’s lecture will be very rushed. There’s a lot to do in this last lecture. EXAMS Final exam, Monday, May 9 th , 12:00 - 3:00 PM - Chapters 12-19, 22.7-22.9 (or 20.7-20.9) Importance of final exam (Worth more than 220 points) - For borderline students: trend - For “A” students (borderline or not) - For all students whose score is 35% STUDY! STUDY! STUDY! - Stop part-time jobs, sports practicing, partying, etc. Urgent to prioritize review session topics, upon request by e-mail LECTURE QUIZ Surprise lecture quiz One left. Last lecture Tuesday I can’t tell you if there will be a quiz on Tuesday; must be kept as a surprise. ATTENDANCE Sign in PHILOSOPHY Come to class early for philosophy. - Career: Job money vs. Job love - Career: Grades as guide?

Chem 162-2011 Lecture 24 3 SELECTED FORMULAS FOR NUCLEAR CHEMISTRY Radioactivity, or radioactive decay, is the spontaneous change of the nuclei of certain atoms, accompanied by the emission of subatomic particles and/or high-frequency electromeagnetic radiation. CAPTURED OR EMITTED PARTICLES/RAYS Alpha particles 4 2 α = 4 2 He Sum of protons and neutrons = mass number (neutrons and protons are nucleons) Beta particles *** β - = 0 -1 β = 0 -1 e Number of protons (or charge) = atomic number Gamma ray ** 0 0 γ Positron particle β + = 0 1 e Neutron 1 0 n Proton 1 1 H **Nuclei have energy levels just as electrons do. When a nucleus in an excited state drops to a lower energy level, the energy is released in the form of a gamma ray. Atoms that emit gamma rays are high energy and are identified with an asterisk. ***An electron can be emitted or captured. Capture: An inner core electron can “fall” into the nucleus to combine with a proton and form a neutron. 0 -1 e + 1 1 H 1 0 n. An outer shell electron then drops to fill the vacancy, releasing an X-ray. 125 53 I + 0 -1 e 125 52 Te + 0 0 γ RADIOACTIVE DECAY RATE Reaction Differential I n t e g r a t e d Order Rate Law rate law Half-life* 1 Rate = λ N l n ( N t /N o ) = - λ t t 1/2 = 0.693/ λ ** l n ( N t ) = - λ t + ln(N o ) Rate = rate of radioactive decay = activity (“A”) = disappearance of atoms/sample per second = disintegrations of atoms/sample per second = disintegrations per second = decays per second λ = the decay constant N = concentration in molarity, number of atoms/sample, molecules/sample, moles/sample, g/sample, %, % of a sample, emission counts/sample, disintegrations/sample, rate of decay/sample Note similarity to equations from KINETICS chapter: KINETICS Reaction Differential I n t e g r a t e d Order Rate Law rate law Half-life* 1 Rate = k[A] ln(A t ) = -kt + ln(A o ) t 1/2 = 0.693/k * For a first order reaction, each successive half-life is equal to the preceding one.
