Using half life to problem solve
Your teacher will provide some exercises for you
to practice using half life to problem solve eg
calculating the age of an object. Insert your
evidence here e.g. a photo or scan of your book or
a worksheet.

Applications of Radioactivity
-----
​(Carbon dating
as exemplar)
You will research one of the following topics, and explain the physics of radioactivity that links to that topic.
1.
2.
3.
4.
Nuclear power generation -​ Fission reactors
Nuclear weapons – ​Fission bombs
Domestic ​Smoke Detectors​ (ionisation detectors)
Radioisotope therapy​ (brachytherapy) for cancer treatment
Resources to start you off:
www.atomicarchive.com/sciencemenu.shtml​ atomic archive also has videos of nuclear weapon tests.
www.howstuffworks.com
Wikipedia (a reliable source for ​scientific i​ nformation, but often too technical)
ESA level 2 physics study guide (available from the library) - has general information and also a good source
for smoke detector information.
Phet.colorado.edu​ ​This has a carbon dating simulation
http://www.nndc.bnl.gov/chart/​ this chart can tell you the half-life of nuclei. Find the nucleus, click, and T1/2 will
be shown at the bottom, in seconds, minutes, hours, or years.
Linking the physics ideas to your chosen topic
Link the principles of radioactivity to the use of 1 particular element in your chosen context. These
principles are based on the activities you completed prior to choosing your research topic.
The more in depth your explanation for each question the better your grade will be.
Explanations must be in your own words - you may not copy and paste from websites or other
students work.
BE SURE TO LINK TO THE INFORMATION YOU HAVE COLLECTED ABOVE:
YOUR REPORT SHOULD INCLUDE:
●

Brief description of your application.
Description of the key element and its decay process
○ Atomic Structure, Half-life
Description the properties of a particle emitted during decay, include balanced equations
Appropriate use of keywords, fission, fusion, chain reaction, ionisation, penetration.
Show calculations of mass and energy using E = mc2​ ​ and power P = E/t.
Discussion of 3 links between the properties of the radioactive element and the context.
You must include a list of all references you have used to help you answer the questions above.

MAIN RADIOACTIVE ELEMENT:
What is the main radioactive element in your chosen application? Write it down here with it’s mass number and
atomic number (or insert a picture) and describe how many protons, electrons and neutrons are present in one
atom.
Atomic Structure
Describe the particle it emits when it decays: (Include size, structure, speed, ionisation strength and
penetration strength)
HALF-LIFE AND DECAY
What is the definition of half life?
What is the half-life of the radioactive element above and how is this property useful in your chosen
context? (You may insert a graph showing it’s half life if you want).
Find the nuclear equation for the decay reaction that occurs in your chosen topic:
State the conservation laws (Charge number and nucleon number) that apply to the nuclear equation
and show how each is fulfilled in the equation.
Describe whether the nuclear reaction above shows fission or fusion, and how you can tell by looking
at the nuclear equation
REALLY IMPORTANT BIT
Discuss 3 links between the properties of the radioactive element and the context.
