No, gamma rays have a charge of 0, so they are neither positively nor negatively charged.


What are the properties of alpha beta and gamma rays?

Alpha rays are positively charged, beta rays are negatively charged, gamma rays are neutral, they don't have any charge.


How do the electric charges of alpha beta and gamma rays differ?

Alpha rays are positively charged, beta negatively charged and gamma rays is an electromagnetic wave(like light) which has no charge. They have obtained their charges on basis of where they originated from within the atom.


Why cathode rays are negatively charged?

How does positron emission tomography work?

A tracer courses through the bloodstream to the target organ, where it emits positrons. The positively charged positrons collide with negatively charged electrons, producing gamma rays.


True or false gamma rays are negitively charged?

False. Gamma rays are photons (light pieces), and have zero charge.


What is radiation that is deflected toward the negatively charged plate?

Alpha Rays are attracted to a negatively charged plate because they consist of positively charged particles.

How do charged plates affect the path of cathode rays?

The electron particles in cathode rays have a negative charge. So if a plate is positively charged, it would attract the cathode rays, and if it was negatively charged, it would repel the rays.


What experimental evidence led Thomson to conclude that cathode rays were negatively charged?

Cathode rays were deflected towards a positively charged plate.


How are gamma rays readable by photomultiplier-scintillator combinations produced by positron emission tomography?

What particle was observed in the cathode rays?

The negatively charged particle called electron.


Which waves vibrate faster faster cosmic rays or gamma rays?

Cosmic rays are charged particles accelerated to high speed in space. They're not electromagnetic radiation, so there's no direct comparison with gamma rays.

What cathode rays are and how they were discovered?

its negatively charged particles of matter,Thomson knew that opposites attract but these the positive charged anode,so he reasoned that the paticles must be negatively charged! : )! Wooooo! Go J.J Thomson
