The Nobel Prize in Physics 1961 was divided equally between Robert Hofstadter for his pioneering studies of electron scattering in atomic nuclei and for his thereby achieved discoveries concerning the structure of the nucleons and Rudolf Ludwig Mossbauer for his researches concerning the resonance absorption of gamma radiation and his discovery in this connection of the effect which bears his name.
Gamma have very high energy.
gamma rays effect us and make us abnormal
The energy of a electromagnetic wave increases as the wavelength decreases. Radio waves have a very long wavelength compared to gamma rays. Since gamma rays have so much energy, they can change molecules by "kicking out" electrons with their energy. Where as radio waves don't have enough energy to effect many compounds.
A gamma ray will have energy in excess of 100 keV (kiloelectronvolts).
Gamma Radiation or Gamma Rays has the highest energy wave of the electromagnetic spectrum. Gamma Rays photon has high energy.
Gamma rays are a type of electromagnetic radiation, which is a type energy. Because a gamma ray is a type of energy, it has no mass.
Gamma decay occurs when an atomic nucleus changes from a higher energy state to a lower one. When it does the "extra" energy leaves in the form of a gamma ray. That's gamma decay. The gamma ray is electromagnetic energy. That means that there is not a particle of anything involved in this event. Gamma decay is the emergence of that gamma ray from the nucleus of an atom that is going down in its energy state
Gamma rays are high-energy photons.
None. A gamma ray is energy.
A gamma wave has more energy than a radio wave.
On the elecromagnetic spectrum, gamma rays have much more energy
In the case of pure gamma decay, the element will not decay into another element or another isotope, like with alpha- or beta radiation, but it will lose energy in the form of a (gamma) photon. The atomic number and mass number will not change.
The energy of gamma radiation is much higher than the energy of infrared radiation. You are emitting infrared radiation, but gamma radiation is very harmful to living tissue.
It has the same effect as on visible light . . . no effect at all.
Gamma Rays will travel as long as they have energy
Gamma radiation is electromagnetic energy, and is produced by gamma decay.
total energy E=gamma*m*c^2 where gamma = 1/sqrt(1-v^2/c^2) K=E - mc^2 = (gamma-1)*(Rest Energy) You know v, and can thus compute gamma, and you know the rest energy.
Each gamma-ray photon carries more energy than an X-ray photon. So gamma rays are more penetrating than X-rays, and have a greater photoelectric effect. But you can still pack more energy into an X-ray beam, simply by generating more photons, i.e. operate a 'brighter' source.
No. Gamma radiation is of higher energy than visible (light) radiation.
Yes. Out of all electromagnetic waves, gamma rays have the highest energy per photon.
