These charts for Physics 30 Chapter 16 "Nuclear Reactions", very concisively summarizes the properties and theories behinf nuclear physics, and the structure of atoms.  These charts describe the function of protons, neutrons, and electrons, in maintaining a stable isotope, and how to differentiate and calculate the possible radioactive isotopes for elements of the periodic table, how to balance those half reactions in atomic half-equations, understanding the function of the fundamental forces in maintaining atomic structure, understanding Einstein's theory of relativity, as well as learning the composition of nucleons, and how to calculate Atomic number (Z), Neutron Number (N), and Atomic Mass Number (A).  These charts also summarize Becquerel's discovery of alpha, beta, and gamma rays, and the function and processes of radioactive decay and half-lives.  Also covered in this charts package is calculating mass defect, energy change, stability of nuclei (using binding energy), expressing energy in joules and electron volts, exceptions for conservation laws of charge and atomic mass number, determining the authenticity of radioactive decay processes using half-reaction equations, finding the daughter and parent element using Atomic mass and Atomic mass number, as well as understanding alpha decay vs. beta decay vs. gamma decay, how to calculate energy difference, and how the effects of nuclear radiation, alpha, beta and gamma radiation contribute to dangerous consequences for the human body in relation to electromagnetic radiation exposure, radiation sickness, and nucleus decays of unstable isotopes.  These charts also explain the qualities and charavteristics of neutrinos, antineutrinos, the function of antimatter, energy levels of nuclear reactions, organic forms of radiation, the purpose of quarks, carbon dating, measuring radiation exposure using grays (Gy) and sieverts (Sv), as well as understanding the roles of fission and fusion when determining radioactive levels in the binding energy of a nucleon, and understanding the proton-proton chain for nuclear fission and fusion, & many other fundamental atomic and nuclear physics concepts.  These charts are made for the Pearson Physics 20-30 textbook, or the Pearson/Nelson Science 30 textbook.  These charts are a great addition to any high school student's portfolio, or to any teacher's curriculum, and is great for diploma exam prep.
