13 Nuclear Band of Stability The ratio of n0 to p+ determines the stability of the nucleus.For most atoms nuclear stability means more n0 than p+If the ratio of n0 to p+ is inadequate it will have an unstablenucleus . (radioisotope)If an atom has more than 83 p+, it is a radioisotope.If an atom has 83 or less p+, it has at least one radioisotope.
14 Radioisotopes Radioisotopes Atoms with unstable nuclei. The ratio of protons-to-neutrons is not adequate for nuclear stability.Most elements need more neutrons than protons to maintain stability within the nucleus.Elements with more than 83 protons are radioisotopes.Elements with less than 83 protons have at least one radioisotope.
15 Nuclear Band of Stability *Big Misconception: Stable nucleus means equal number of protons and neutrons. Fromgraph, students confirmed that most elements with a stable nucleus needs more neutrons to minimize the repulsion force between protons within the nucleus.
16 Nuclear Band of Stability Using the graph above, determine if the following are radioisotopes.Hg b. Na c. Zn-70T or F Nuclear reactions are spontaneous and their reaction rates are constant unless an inhibitor or catalyst is added to the sample.
17 Radiosotope’s Notation What is the radioisotope notation for each of the following?a. Polonium (Po). It has a mass number of 210.b. Rn-240 with an atomic number of 86.c. Th-230.
18 Nuclear ReactionsA reaction that occurs within the nucleus of a radioisotope in order to stabilize it.Also called: radioactive decay; radioactivitySpontaneous Reactions (occurs naturally).Reaction rates (speed of reactions) remain constant for radioisotopes despite changes in temperature, pressure, or addition of catalyst.Radioisotopes have half-lives.
19 Nuclear Reactions: Half-Life Half-Life: The time it takes for half of a radioisotopesample (parent isotope) to decay into a more stable isotope (daughter isotope).Nuclear Equation:radioisotopeparent decays α daughter isotope isotope(unstable) (stable)Transmutation: An element is converted into a new element during a nuclear reaction.
