- Nuclear Chemistry Chapter 23 23.1-23.6
- Slide 2
- Nuclear Chemistry Nuclear Chemistry- the study of reactions involving changes in atomic nuclei. Importance Disadvantages
- Slide 3
- Nuclear Reactions Except for Hydrogen, all nuclei contain particles called protons and neutrons. Nuclei can be stable or unstable. Unstable Nuclei emit particles and/or electromagnetic radiation spontaneously. Phenomenon is called Radioactivity. Nuclear Transmutation- results from the bombardment of nuclei by neutrons, protons or other nuclei.
- Slide 4
- Nuclear Reactions Atomic number (Z) = number of protons in nucleus Mass number (A) = number of protons + number of neutrons = atomic number (Z) + number of neutrons X A Z Mass Number Atomic Number Element Symbol

- Slide 6
- Balancing Nuclear Equations 1.Conserve mass number (A). The sum of protons plus neutrons in the products must equal the sum of protons plus neutrons in the reactants. 1n1n 0 U 235 92 + Cs 138 55 Rb 96 37 1n1n 0 ++ 2 235 + 1 = 138 + 96 + 2x1
- Slide 7
- Balancing Nuclear Equations 2.Conserve atomic number (Z) or nuclear charge. The sum of nuclear charges in the products must equal the sum of nuclear charges in the reactants. 1n1n 0 U 235 92 + Cs 138 55 Rb 96 37 1n1n 0 ++ 2 92 + 0 = 55 + 37 + 2x0

- Chemical Reactions vs. Nuclear Reactions
- Slide 11
- Nuclear Stability Nucleus is very small Contributes most of weight of atom Extremely high density Even higher # of particles
- Slide 12
- Nuclear Stability Particles repel/attract each other neutron-to-proton ratio Predicting stability: Magic numbers: 2,8,20,50,82,126 Even numbers of neutrons and protons vs. odd numbers All isotopes of elements with atomic numbers higher than 83 are radioactive. All isotopes of Tc and Pm are radioactive.

- Nuclear Binding Energy Nuclear Binding Energy- the energy required to break up a nucleus into its component protons and neutrons. Necessity? Mass Defect Einsteins Theory of Relativity E = mc 2
- Slide 19
- Nuclear Binding Energy BE + 19 F 9 1 p + 10 1 n 9 1 0 BE = 9 x (p mass) + 10 x (n mass) 19 F mass E = mc 2 BE (amu) = [(9 x 1.007825) + (10 x 1.008665)] 18.9984 BE = 0.1587 amu 1 amu = 1.49 x 10 -10 J BE = 2.37 x 10 -11 J

- Natural Radioactivity Outside the belt of stability, nuclei are radioactive. Radioactive nuclei spontaneously emit radiation. particles, particles, rays, etc. Disintegration of radioactive nucleus leads to a decay series.

- Nuclear Fission Nuclear Fission- the process in which a heavy nucleus (mass number > 200) divides to form smaller nuclei of intermediate mass and one or more neutrons. Energy is released. Uranium-235 was the first element discovered to go through nuclear fission.

- Nuclear Fission Nuclear chain reaction is a self-sustaining sequence of nuclear fission reactions. The minimum mass of fissionable material required to generate a self-sustaining nuclear chain reaction is the critical mass.

- Heavy Water Reactors Uses Deuterium D 2 O D absorbs neutrons less efficiently than H Does not require U-235 Neutrons leak out of reactor Expensive to prepare D 2 O Environmentally friendly
- Slide 41
- Breeder Reactors Breeder Reactor- uses uranium fuel, but unlike a conventional nuclear reactor, it produces more fissionable materials than it uses. Converts uranium-238 to plutonium-239 in a 3 step process. Plutonium-239 undergoes fission Reactor produces 1 mole of p-239 for every 1 mole used. Takes 7-10 years for complete regeneration.
