- Slide 2
- Slide 2 of 24 Review Chapter 3 Z = Atomic Number Atomic Number is the number of _______. Mass Number Number of _______ + ________ Average Atomic mass Weighted average of mass numbers of isotopes What is an isotope? Why are electrons not included in the mass number?
- Slide 3
- Slide 3 of 24 Hydrogen Isotopes Protium (99.985%) 1 proton, 0 neutons, 1 electron Deuterium (0.015%) (Heavy Water) __ proton, __ neutron, __ electron Tritium (Rare) (Radioactive) __ proton, __ neutron, __ electron

- Slide 5
- Slide 5 of 24 Mass of an atom? Mass of 1 atom is 2.657 x 10 -23 So use another method Carbon 12 atom weighs 12 Atomic Mass Units Atomic Mass Unit (AMU) Easy to find the mass of an atom: Find mass number or atomic mass + attach AMU as the units Example: Oxygen = 16 amu OR 15.9994 amu
- Slide 6
- Slide 6 of 24 First some vocab Nucleons particles in the nucleus Nuclide another name for an atom Identified by the number of protons + neutrons Nuclear Reaction reaction that affects the nucleus of an atom Transmutation change in proton number Change in the identity of a nucleus Oxygen-16 transmutates via alpha emission to Carbon- 12
- Slide 7
- Slide 7 of 24 Mass Defect When nucleons bind together into a nucleus, they LOSE mass Mass Defect (sum of the masses of the protons + neutrons + electrons) (atomic mass) Proton mass = 1.007 276 amu Neutron mass = 1.008 665 amu Electron mass = 0.000 5486 amu
- Slide 8
- Slide 8 of 24 Find Mass Defect Helium-4 atom (p. 681) Helium atom = 2 protons, 2 neutrons, 2 electrons 2 protons = 2(1.007 276 amu) =2.014 552 2 neutrons = 2(1.008 665 amu) =2.017 330 2 electrons = 2(0.000 5486 amu) =0.001 097 TOTAL: 4.032 979 amu Periodic Table: 4.002 602 Mass Defect = 4.032 979 amu 4.002 602 amu MASS DEFECT = 3.0377 x 10 -2 amu
- Slide 9
- Slide 9 of 24 Nuclear Binding Energy (NBE) Definition The energy released when a nucleus is formed from its nucleons Mass defect can be converted to NBE by Einsteins famous equation: E = mc 2 E = energy m = mass c = speed of light = 3.00 x 10 8 m/s Now we will find nuclear binding energy in the previous problem.
- Slide 10
- Slide 10 of 24 Finding Nuclear Binding Energy Mass defect for Helium-4 = 3.0377 x 10 -2 amu Step 1: Convert units: amu kg Conversion Factor: 1 amu = 1.6605 x 10 -27 kg Calculation: (3.0377 x 10 -2 amu) (1.6605 x 10 -27 kg/amu) Mass = 5.0441 x 10 -29 kg E = mc 2 & c = 3.00 x 10 8 m/s E = (5.0441 x 10 -29 kg) (3.00 x 10 8 m/s) 2 E = 4.54 x 10 -12 kg * m 2 /s 2
- Slide 11
- Slide 11 of 24 Nuclear Binding Energy NBE is also the energy that must be input to break apart the nucleus into its constituent nucleons Since energy is released when a nucleus forms, which is more stable the nucleus or the separated nucleons? Nucleus, since energy is inversely proportional to stability Lower energy = MORE stability
- Slide 12
- Slide 12 of 24 Another Problem Calculate the nuclear binding energy of a Sulfur-32 atom Step 1: Calculate the mass defect 16 protons (16*1.007276) + 16 neutrons (16*1.008665) + 16 electrons (16*0.0005486) = 16.116 416 + 16.138 64 + 0.0087776 = 32.263 833 6 = 32.263 83Sig Figs !!! Mass Defect = 32.26383 32.065 = 0.1988336 = 0.199 amu Sig Figs !!!
- Slide 13
- Slide 13 of 24 Another Problem (Page 2) Step 2: Calculate the NBE Mass in amu = 0.1988336 0.1988336 amu * (1.6605 x 10 -27 kg/amu) Mass in kg = 3.301 632 x 10 -28 kg E = mc 2 E = (3.301 632 x 10 -28 kg)(3.00 x 10 8 m/s) 2 E = 2.971 468 x 10 -11 kg * m 2 /s 2 = 2.97 x 10 -11 kg * m 2 /s 2

- Slide 17 of 24 Half-Life = Math Problems Phosphorous-32 has a life of 14.3 days. How many milligrams (mg) remain after 57.2 days, if the sample began with 4.0 mg? 57.2 / 14.3 = 4 Half-Lives 4 Half-Lives = (1/2)(1/2)(1/2)(1/2) of original amount remains 1/16 of the original amount remains 4.0 * (1/16) = 0.25 mg remains

- Slide 21 of 24 Nuclear Fission Nuclear Fission heavy nucleus splits into more-stable nuclei of intermediate mass Mass will be converted to energy, usually a lot of energy Chain reaction material that begins a reaction is also one of the products so it can begin another reaction Critical Mass minimum amount of nuclide that is required to sustain a chain reaction Nuclear Power Generators use controlled-fission chain reaction to produce energy Also produces unwanted radioactive nuclides Makes fish (and humans) glow!!
