Chemistry Nuclear and electron Review

1. Explain why most of the mass of an atom is in the nucleus and its volume is in the
electron cloud.
2. What force keeps the nucleus of the atom together? What force in the nucleus
tries to break it apart?
3. Give the nuclear symbol for the elements below
a. carbon 14
c. Sodium 24
b. Calcium 43
d. Uranium - 239
4. What are the six types of radioactive decay we discussed in class?
5. Explain each decay above and give its charge and nuclear symbol.
6. Rank Alpha, Beta, and gamma first by density and then by ease of stopping the
particle. Explain the relationship between the density and ease of stopping the
7. write out or finish the decays below.
147 N + _________
b. Uranium 235 undergoes an alpha decay
c. What is produced when protactinium 229 goes through two alpha decays.
d. What element goes through a beta decay to produce cerium-144
e. Neutron initiated fission of U-235 results in the release of 2 neutrons, the
formation of Cs-144 and another nucleus.
f. Tritium and deuterium are fused to produce a neutron and a new nucleus.
8. What are the half-life equations?
9. Calculate the ending half-life amount.
a. Health officials are concerned about radon levels in homes. The half-life of
radon-222 is 3.82 days. If a sample of gas contains 4.38 micrograms of radon222, how much will remain in the sample after 15.2 days?
b. Sodium-24 has a half-life of 15 hours. How much sodium-24 will remain in an
18.0 g sample after 60 hours?
10. Calculate the original half-life amount.
a. Carbon-14 has a half life of 5,715yrs. If 2.5g of a sample is left after
23,456yrs what was the mass of the original sample?
b. A sample of Radon-222 is found to have a mass of 1.2 grams. If it has a halflife of 3.82 days and you have had it for 3 months how much did you start
11. Calculate the percentage of sample left.
a. Uranium-238 decays very slowly, with a half-life of 4.47 billion years. What
percentage of a sample of uranium-238 would remain after 13.4 billion years?
b. The half-life of palladium-103 is 17 days. What is the percentage of your
sample left if you keep it for 10 months?
Calculate the half-life.
a. A sample of Strontium-90 is found to have decayed to one-eighth of its
original amount after 87.3 years. What is the half-life of strontium-90?
b. A sample of Francium-212 will decay to one-sixteenth its original amount
after 80 minutes. What is the half-life of francium-212?
Calculate the time.
a. Sodium-24 has a half-life of 15 hours. How much sodium-24 will remain in an
18.0 g sample after 60 hours?
