SIMULATION in Radiation, Alpha/Beta/Gamma Decay, Radioactive Isotopes. Last updated December 13, 2023.


In this simulation, students will investigate why radioactive decay occurs, the changes that occur in the nucleus during three common types of decay (alpha, beta, and gamma decay), and what types of materials can be used to protect against each type of radiation. Students will also have a chance to test their understanding of these concepts with a 10-question quiz.
