Virtual Lab: Radioactive Elements
- How can you simulate the radio halfÂlife of an element?
In this lab, you will investigate the meaning of radioactive halfÂlife as you see a simulation of the radioactive decay of isotopes of four hypothetical elements.
- Collect radioactive decay rate data for hypothetical isotopes over a period of 20,000 years.
- Determine, compare, and contrast halfÂlives of four radioactive elements.
Short Answer Question.
- Described what you have learned from learned from the lab above for radioactive elements. (300 word minimum response.)
