Demonstrate Nuclear Decay
Radioisotopes have been found to be useful in the fields of geology, medical diagnosis and treatment, metallurgy, agriculture, and scientific research. This lab allows students to see a demonstration of nuclear decay using a model of uranium-238. By graphing their data, they better understand the reason for radioactive decay and the concepts of subatomic particles, half life, and more. It includes enough materials for 15 setups, a teacher’s guide, and student copymasters.
