Lesson 43: Alpha, Beta, & Gamma Decay
The late 1800s and early 1900s were a period of intense research into the new nuclear realm of
In 1896 Henri Becquerel found that a sample of uranium he was doing
experiments with had a special property.
Buffers are solutions that resist changes in pH, upon addition of small
amounts of acid or base. The can do this because they contain an acidic
component, HA, to neutralize OH- ions, and a basic component, A-, to
neutralize H+ ions.

1.) What happens when a radioactive atom undergoes radioactive decay?
When a radioactive atom undergoes radioactive decay the nucleus will release radiation in the form of alpha,
beta or gamma. This will often cause transmut
