Asked in Chemistry
How does gamma radiation differ from alpha and beta radiation?
Gamma radiation is electromagnetic radiation, whereas alpha and beta radiation are forms of particulate radiation. ...
Asked in Chemistry, Nuclear Physics
Emission of gamma rays does not change the atomic number of a nucleus?
no, gamma rays are very high frequency electromagnetic radiation and are not protons or electrons as alpha and beta radiation are respectively. ...
What is the difference of alpha beta and gamma radiation?
Alpha radiation: corpuscular radiation, helium atoms Beta radiation: electrons Gamma radiation: electromagnetic radiation of high energy ...
How does the frequency of electromagnetic radiation change as wavelength of the radiation decreases?
Frequency of em radiation is inversely proportional to its wavelength.so, frequency increases with decrease in wavelength. ...

What is the difference between nuclear radiation and heat radiation?
Heat radiation is infrared radiation, which is a relatively low frequency radiation, slightly lower than that of visible light. Nuclear radiation includes a variety of types, including X rays and gamma rays, which are very high frequency radiation, and which are consequently much more dangerous, and can cause radiation sickness. There are also other types of nuclear radiation such as alpha rays, beta rays, and neutrons, all of which are in the form of subatomic particles rather than electromagnetic radiation. ...
Asked in Atoms and Atomic Structure
Does beta radiation results in the emission of electrons?
In beta radiation, an emission of electrons can occur due to beta decay. A neutron can disintegrate into protons and electrons. ...

What are Alpha Gamma and Beta radiation?
These are types of both particulate and electromagnetic radiation, and alpha and beta are the former while gamma is the latter. Let's look at each one in brief. An alpha particle is a pair of protons and a pair of neutrons all hooked together. It's a helium-4 nucleus, and it's particulate radiation. A gamma ray is electromagnetic radiation (an electromagnetic ray) of very high frequency and energy (which also means very short wavelength). A beta particle is one of two types of...
Asked in Physics, Elements and Compounds
How is the energy of a quantum of emitted radiation related to the frequency of the radiation?
The energy of a quantum of emitted radiation related to the frequency of the radiation is directly proportional to the frequency. The proportionality constant is known as Planck's Constant. E = (h) x (frequency). ...
Asked in Physics
What three kinds of radiation are given off by radioactive decay?
Alpha radiation: this consists of fast moving helium nuclei - i.e. two neutrons and two protons. Beta radiation: this is composed of single electrons. Gamma radiation: very high frequency, high energy electromagnetic radiation. ...
