The students will figure out how neutrons help hold the nucleus of an atom together. Then they will determine what happens during an atomic bomb explosions.
Tuesday, Oct 17We will calculate the mass change during a fission reaction. Then we will use E=mc2 to determine the energy produced in that reaction.Wednesday, Oct 18
The students will learn how nuclear chain reactions can be moderated to produce useful energy.
Thursday, Oct 19
We will investigate the 3 types of radioactive decay. The students will conduct an experiment to model radioactive half-life.
Friday, Oct 20We will investigate how to store radioactive waste.
