    How dare you intrude the realm of Physics.

  • Ruadhan Glynn says:

    Doesn’t beta decay also create neutrinos? (Except for neutrino less double
    beta decay.)

  • Arno Victor Dorian says:

    HALF LIFE? PHOSPHORUS-32? *3*2??!!?! HALF-LIFE 3?!?!?!?!


    Why is this video voted down?

  • Dispatch009 says:

    Imagine Dragons reference….MODERN MUSIC REFERENCE FTW! YEAH! :D

  • Cash Money Ravioli says:

    Thank you dude; I learned this in school for three weeks but your
    explanation has been so much more helpful 🙂 unfortunately i have already
    had the test for it…. 

  • Nick A says:

    Maybe the hulk is just less dense.

  • Emma F says:

    why the fuck do you guys look and talk like john green does he hold look
    and act alike castings to hire people to teach things he doesn’t know and
    why is finding a smart john green look alike so easy ok bye sorry

  • Angie Lee says:

    Can you do one about ions? If there is one already, can someone link me? 

  • Ryder Grear says:

    If Uranium can be broken down into two elements after radioactive decay
    wouldn’t that make it count as more of a compound than an actual element
    since an element cannot be broken down into simpler substances?

  • Morgan Freeman says:

    Nuclear energy does contribute to global warming because it vaporizes steam
    which is a green house gas

  • Carolyn Martin says:

    If I weren’t 16 I would marry you… Well, not really considering how I
    can’t even gain enough confidence to talk to another human without either
    fainting or running away. Anyway, you’re amazing and I love how you’re so
    knowledgeable about everything you choose to learn. I have high respect for
    you, and you are a wondrous human being :)

    Xenon has an atomic number of 91? 6:52

  • waser ejreifjj says:

    creepers. i fucking hate them

  • fartzinwind says:

    Californium also looks really cool, unfortunately the Google is failing me
    at finding images. It gives me all the other cool elements and ores… but
    no californium as of yet.

  • zeban khan says:

    how Th(Thorium) can changes to Xe??? are you ok??? and Xe Atomic No is 54,,
    not 91,,,, recorrect ur mistake

  • Kareem Ibrahem says:

    Great video with plenty of good explanations but the Gamma emission
    explanation was wrong as well as a few other minor points. This may be a
    video that you guys should re-edit to correct the mistakes since they are
    very misleading and can cause some serious confusion.

  • Ninou Theodore says:

    beta decay in thorium gives protactinium (Pa) not Xenon which has an atomic
    number of 54 _”

  • mackasmatt05 says:

    Good video but you talk way too fast!

  • Nikifuj908 says:

    Hank, the Hulk could just have increased in volume and still obeyed
    conservation laws!

  • SpectatorAlius says:

    I think this has been mentioned before, but it is no longer in the first
    page of comments, so I will repeat it again: his definition of
    “radioactivity” is misleading, since you can also get radioactivity from
    the nucleus simply changing state from excited to ground state w/o losing
    either protons or neutrons.

    Also, though he defines “nuclear chemistry”, his definition tells us
    nothing about why we call this “nuclear chemistry” and not “nuclear
    physics”: a good definition would address this question.

  • CapKarlos says:

    Screw plutonium and cobalt-60, thorium for the win.

  • Nikolaj Lepka says:

    You forgot about one type of decay, the positive beta decay, which instead
    of emitting an electron, emits a positron, causing the nucleus to gain a
    neutron and lose a proton. example: (23,12)Mg → (23, 11)Na + (0, +1)e

    And here’s negative beta in comparison: (14, 6)C → (14, 7)N + (0, -1)e

    ( the weird notation I just made up is basically, (particle count,
    proton/charge count)Element )
