Nuclear Physics
1 Photoelectric effect

Annotations:

  • Occurs when light shining onto a piece of metal causes electrons to be given off. For most metals UV light is required.
1.1 Atomic line spectra

Annotations:

  • The light given out by low-pressure gases when they are exited by heat or electrical discharge. An example of this is given out by neon advertising lights or yellow sodium vapour street lights.
2 Nuclear reactions

Annotations:

  • In nuclear reactions the atomic number and the mass number are conserved.
2.1 Binding energy

Annotations:

  • The amount of energy which must be supplied in order to make up the mass deficit.
2.2 Nuclear fission

Annotations:

  • Occurs when a large nucleus split into smaller nuclei. When this happens, a large amount of energy is released as KE and gamma radiation.
2.3 Nuclear fusion

Annotations:

  • This is where 2 small nuclei join together to form a larger nucleus. Again large amounts of energy is released.
