Radiation consists of three types of particles:
1. Alpha particles:
An alpha particle consists of 2 protons and 2 neutrons. So it has a mass of 4 units. It shoots out of the radioisotope at high speed but slows down quickly in air. It can't pass through paper or skin.
The radioisotope americium-241 is used in smoke alarms. It has 95 protons, and decays by giving out an alpha particle. That leaves 93 protons, which means it has turn ... mehr
