Nuclear RadiationPre-Lab Study Questions1. In what part of the atom do alpha or beta particles originate?Alpha particles originate- nucleusBeta cells originate- electrons2. Why is protection from radiation needed?high doses of radiation can damage DNA causing mutations and even death of cells3. What are some medical uses of radiation?radiographsradiotherapyDo “Nuclear Radiation” lab simulation and make tables for each part. Make one tablefor the different sources, one table for shielding, one table for time and onetable for distanceElementShieldingReadingMagnesium 24none0Magnesium 23none100Iodine 127none0Iodine 131none200Uranium 235none300Uranium 235glass285Uranium 235alum. foil263Uranium 235lead9Uranium 235paper297A. Background Count—from simulation8B. Radiation from Radioactive Sources—from simulationQuestions and ProblemsQ.1 Which item was the most radioactive?I 131 from part A…however uranium 235 is by far most radioactive of all readingsQ.2 – omitC. Effect of Shielding, Time, and Distance—from simulationQ.3 Which type of shielding provides the best protection from radiation? Why?Lead. It is more dense than of the radioactive frequency. Lead is most effectivefor the shielding of gamma waves. Questions and ProblemsQ.6 List some shielding materials adequate for protection from:a. alpha particles-skinb. beta particles-aluminumc. gamma rays-lead
