    that is now called “radioactivity.” As scientists studied radioactivity more closely, they discovered that radioactive atoms are naturally unstable. In order to become stable, radioactive atoms emit particles and/or energy waves. This process came to be known as radioactive decay. The major types of ionizing radiation emitted during radioactiveMissing: Brazil.

    Radioactivity - Radioactivity - Applications of radioactivity: Radioisotopes have found extensive use in diagnosis and therapy, and this has given rise to a rapidly growing field called nuclear medicine. These radioactive isotopes have proven particularly effective as tracers in certain diagnostic procedures. As radioisotopes are identical chemically with stable isotopes of the same element Missing: Brazil. Pierre () and Marie () Curie. Contributions: Pierre and Marie were award the Noble Prize in Physics in for their work on radioactivity. Marie Curie became the first woman to be awarded the nobel prize and the first person to obtain two nobel prizes when she won the prize for the discovery of Polonium and Radium in

      In this study, the naturally occurring radionuclides and their associated radiological hazards were assessed in commonly consumed nuts in Ile-Ife, South west, Nigeria. Samples of different species of nuts were obtained in Ile-Ife, Osun State, Nigeria and their activity levels were determined using gamma ray spectrometer. The results showed that the mean activity of the identified . Nature and Characteristics of Radioactive Emissions. The phenomenon of radioactivity arises because of the decay of unstable nuclei or certain element. The nature of the radiations emitted from a radioactive substance was investigated by Rutherford ()by applying electric and magnetic g: Brazil.

Natural radioactivity originates from two primary sources: cosmic radiation and radioactive elements in the earth’s crust. All the elements from polonium (atomic number 84) to uranium (atomic number 92) are radioactive.

Radioisotopes of some lighter elements are also found in Missing: Brazil. The activities of the natural radionuclides ( U, Th, Ra and 40 K) of the surface sediments in the Yangtze Estuary were determined and used to evaluate radiation hazards in the study of activities of U, Th, Ra and 40 K ranges from tototoand to Bq kg − 1, respectively, which were comparable to values of other.

Abstract. We have studied the distribution of natural radioactivity in the soil of Interlagos, in Sao Paulo city and Billings Reservoir, in Sao Bernardo do Campo, Sao Paulo, Brazil. The main contribution of the effective radiation dose is due to the elements of the {sup }Th decay series, with smaller contributions from {sup 40}K and the elements of the series of {sup }U.
