Physics - Nuclear Physics Standards


Standard Number: 6.0 Nuclear Physics:

The student will investigate the laws and properties of nuclear physics.


Links verified 10/27/2012

Level 1 || Level 2 || Level 3
At Level 1, the student is able to:

1. identify the parts of an atom.

  1. Nuclear Particles including Data for a Scale Model of an Atom
  2. Nuclear Physics Concept Map - from hyperphysics

2. describe the properties and location of subatomic particles.

  1. How can we see the structure of atom? This java applet allows a simulation of the same situation as in Rutherford's experiment. (Don't judge the physics of this Japanese physicist by his spelling) This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  2. Use this java applet to play with colored balls (just like Quarks). Nori presents a variation on the same subject in this applet. This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data

3. describe three forms of radioactivity.

  1. Alpha Radioactivity - from hyperphysics
  2. Beta Radioactivity - from hyperphysics
  3. Gamma radioactivity - from hyperphysics
  4. Forms of radioactivity; Alpha , Beta , and Gamma

4. distinguish between nuclear fission and nuclear fusion.

  1. Nuclear Binding Energy including a discussion of fission and fusion
  2. Topics in nuclear energy in the form of a concept map
At Level 2, the student is able to:

1. distinguish between the Bohr model and the quantum model of an atom.

  1. Bohr model of an atom - an interactive applet accompanied by dialog This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  2. Bohr's Theory of the Hydrogen Atom - an applet which shows a hydrogen atom according to particle or wave model This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  3. Energy Levels - an interactive quantum atom model applet accompanied by dialog This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data

2. explain the changes in atomic number or mass number for each form of radioactivity.

  1. Alpha Radioactivity - from hyperphysics
  2. Beta Radioactivity - from hyperphysics
  3. Gamma radioactivity - from hyperphysics
  4. Java applet illustrating Radioactive Decay Series for several substances
  5. Uranium-235 Decay Series - the Actinium series

3. write and balance equations for the three forms of radioactive decay.

  1. Nuclear Notation
  2. Law of Radioactive Decay applet - As soon as the applet is started with the yellow button, the atomic nuclei will begin to "decay" This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  3. Java applet illustrating Radioactive Decay Series for several substances

4. solve half-life problems.

  1. Half-Life applet - choose any of sixteen isotopes and observe a representation of the decay accompanied by a graph This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  2. Radioactive Half-Life - includes a link to an interactive Radioactive Decay Calculation

5. explain dating methods using carbon-14 or uranium.

  1. Carbon Dating - from hyperphysics
  2. Radioactive Dating - from hyperphysics
  3. Clocks in the Rocks - from hyperphysics

6. explain how particles behave like waves.

  1. Photoelectric Effect - a Java applet which simulates an experiment for the determination of the Planck constant and the work function This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  2. Wave-Particle Duality and the Photoelectric Effect

7. distinguish between coherent and incoherent light.

  1. Quantum Properties of Light - including lasers and coherent light

8. describe how a laser is produced.

  1. How Lasers Work - from How Stuff Works
At Level 3, the student is able to:

1. recognize how the quantum theory explains the photoelectric effect.

  1. Early Photoelectric Effect Data - includes an interactive section on Photon Energies for EM Spectrum
  2. Wave-Particle Duality and the Photoelectric Effect

2. solve problems related to the photoelectric effect.

  1. Photoelectric Effect - a Java applet which simulates an experiment for the determination of the Planck constant and the work function This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
