Transcript

  • 1. The Nucleus of the Atom Chapter 12 Great Idea: Nuclear energy depends on the conversion of mass into energy
  • 2. Chapter Outline
    • Empty Space, Explosive Energy
    • The Organization of the Nucleus
    • Radioactivity
    • Energy from the Nucleus
  • 3. Empty Space, Explosive Energy
  • 4. Empty Space, Explosive Energy
    • Relation of atom to nucleus
      • What goes on in the nucleus has almost nothing to do with the atom’s chemistry, and vice versa
      • The energies available in the nucleus are much greater than those available among electrons
    • E = mc 2
  • 5. Mass Change When a Bow is Drawn
  • 6. The Organization of the Nucleus
  • 7. The Organization of the Nucleus
    • Rutherford
    • Nucleus
      • Proton
      • Neutron
    • Nucleus gives atom its mass
  • 8. Atomic Numbers, Isotopes, and the Mass Number
    • Atomic number
      • Number of protons in nucleus
        • Dictates the arrangement of electrons
