What types of radioactive hookup are there

New xXx Video What types of radioactive hookup are there.

Ionizing radiation takes a few forms: Alpha, beta, and neutron particles, and gamma and X-rays.

All types are caused by unstable atoms, which have either an excess of energy or mass or both. In order to reach a stable state, they must release that extra energy or mass in the form of radiation.

Alpha radiation occurs when an atom undergoes radioactive decay, giving off a particle called an alpha particle consisting of two protons and two neutrons essentially the nucleus of a helium-4 atomchanging the originating atom to one of an element with an What types of radioactive hookup are there number 2 less and atomic weight 4 less than it started with. Due to their charge and mass, alpha particles interact strongly with matter, and only travel a few centimeters in air.

Alpha particles are unable to penetrate the outer layer of dead skin cells, but are capable, if an alpha emitting substance is ingested in food or air, of causing serious cell damage.

Alexander Litvinenko is a famous example. He was poisoned by polonium, an alpha emitter, in his tea. Beta radiation takes the form of either an electron or a positron a particle with the size and mass of an electron, but with a positive charge being emitted from an atom.

Due to the smaller mass, it is able to travel further in air, up to a few meters, and can be stopped by a thick piece of plastic, or even a stack of paper. It can penetrate skin a few centimeters, posing somewhat of an external health risk.
