FREE PREVIEW

Nuclear radiation is a natural part of all environments. Scientists classify any substance that emits nuclear radiation as radioactive. Alpha, beta, and gamma are the three types of radiation.

Part B: The Building Blocks of Atoms (04:04)

Atoms consist of protons and neutrons, which make up the nucleus, and electrons. Protons are positively charged, and electrons are negatively charged. The mass of an atom is mostly its nucleus.

Part C: Isotopes and Nuclides (12:08)

Isotopes are forms of the same element that contain equal numbers of protons but different numbers of neutrons; it creates a different atomic mass. A nuclide is any atom with a unique combination of protons and neutrons. Radioisotopes and radionuclides are commonly used terms in industries related to nuclear radiation.
