Radio-Active Substances Paperback – Febru This book is a reproduction of Marie Curie’s doctoral thesis in which she proved that radium is a chemical element. It was presented at the Sorbonne in This edition is an unabridged republication of the English translation.5/5(3). Polonium gives off α-rays only. Amongst the other radio-active substances, actinium seems to behave like radium, but the study of its radiation has not yet advanced so far as in the case of radium. As regards the faintly radio-active bodies, we know to-day that uranium and thorium give rise to α-rays as well as β-rays (Becquerel, Rutherford). Radium, and other radio-active substances polonium, actinium, and thorium. With a consideration of phosphorescent and fluorescent substances, the properties and applications of selenium, and the treatment of disease by the ultra-violet light. Radium is a chemical element with the symbol Ra and atomic number It is the sixth element in group 2 of the periodic table, also known as the alkaline earth radium is silvery-white, but it readily reacts with nitrogen (rather than oxygen) on exposure to air, forming a black surface layer of radium nitride (Ra 3 N 2).All isotopes of radium are highly radioactive, with the most Pronunciation: /ˈreɪdiəm/ (RAY-dee-əm).
Special consideration is given to the best methods to be employed for demonstrating radio-activity, with a description of the apparatus to be employed. One chapter is devoted to the application of radium and radio-active substances in medicine. The book is well illustrated. We wish particularly to commend the index, which is full and complete. Radium, and Other Radio-active Substances: Polonium, Actinium, and Thorium, with a Consideration of Phosphorescent and Fluorescent Substances, the Properties and Applications of Selenium and the Treatment of Disease by the Ultra-violet , William J.D. Van Nostrand CompanyBound in publishe. Radioactive Substances is the PhD thesis of Marie Skłodowska Curies research at the Sorbonne. An intellectually and scientifically intimidating read, however its worth the endeavor. Mme Curie recounts each experiment and her finding with illuminating detail/5. On Ap , Marie and Pierre Curie successfully isolate radioactive radium salts from the mineral pitchblende in their laboratory in Paris. In , the.
