What is an example of beta radiation?
hi. an example of beta radiation is MEDICAL TRACERS. This was proved to me today at college. thanx
Of alpha, beta and gamma radiation, gamma radiation has the greater ability to penetrate either shielding or living tissue. The penetration issue aside, a contact source that is an alpha emitter can do more tissue damage than beta or gamma radiation. Alpha and beta radiation are particulate radiation. They involve a particle. Gamma radiation is electromagnetic radiation of high energy. Use the links below to learn more about each type of radiation and get a…
beta radiation is effected by a magnetic Field. A beta particle will bend toward the south of the magnet (+). beta radiation bends because it is made up of a single electron with a negative charge also known as e-. this negative charge means that the beta radiation will bend toward the positive side of the magnetic field.
Beta particles or radiation is an electron emitted at high speed or energy from some types of unstable elements in a process known as beta-decay. Beta radiation is not healthy for living things. It is usually stopped by a few millimeters of metal, wood, or plastic. Direct exposure to the skin can cause radiation burns.
Beta radiation is particles of either electrons or positrons gamma radiation is electromagnetic radiation Alpha radiation is particles where each particle is composed of two protons and two neutrons (helium nucleus) In addition, gamma has the strongest penetration followed by beta, and followed by alpha radiation
No, beta radiation is not uncharged. Beta radiation is the result of beta decay, and there are two kinds of beta decay. In one type, beta minus decay, an electron is ejected from an atomic nucleus. The electron is negatively charged. In the other type, beta plus decay, an positron, which is an anti-electron (antimatter), is ejected from the nucleus. The positron is positively charged. Beta radiation is either negatively charged electrons or positively charged…
Which of the following is not a component of the radiation emitted by a radioactive sample a.alpha radiation b.delta radiation c.gamma radiation d.beta radiation?
Does it matter if aluminum absorbers are near a Geiger-Muller detector when you have a radioactive source of beta particles?
It does if you want to detect the beta radiation. Beta radiation, beta particles, can be stopped with a sheet of aluminum foil. An aluminum "absorber" would act as a shield to the Geiger-Müller (GM) detector and stop the beta radiation, which is really high energy electrons or possibly positrons. Placing a shield between the source of the beta radiation and the GM detector would block the radiation, thus shielding the detector from it. The…
I'm not sure there are quantifiers for "difference", but "completely" comes close. Alpha and beta radiation is (massive) particle based, gamma rays are electromagnetic radiation ... technically this is a particle (photons), but photons have zero invariant mass. Alpha radiation is a helium nucleus on the run. Beta radiation is an electron on the run. Gamma radiation is a very high energy "light" ray (electromagnetic radiation).
