Chapter Thirty-One: Nuclear Physics & Radioactivity

Natural Radioactive Series

Yevgeniy Miretskiy, SUNY Stony Brook Project Java.

This applet plots the population of different members of the natural radioactive decay series as time elapses.

The CPEP Particle Adventure

The Contempory Education Physics Project (CPEP) is a non-profit organization of teachers, educators, and physicists around the world. One site is at Lawerence Berkeley National Laboratory.

This site contains interactive tutorials, quicktime movies and classroom materials describing the standard model of particle physics, fundamental forces, experimental particle physics research,radioactive decay, and a history of atomic physics. There is also a tutorial on Fusion available.

Hands on CERN

An education initiative by Stockholm University, Sweden, the Swedish Foundation for Knowledge and Competence Development and CERN, the European particle physics laboratory outside Geneva, Switzerland.

Hands on CERN is a project to make modern scientific information from high energy particle collisions at CERN available to scientists, students and teachers very soon after they have occurred. Explore the world of particles, the building blocks of nature- quarks and leptons. Learn about high-tech experiments, accelerators and detectors.
