    Title: Radioactive Decay
    Type: Text Slide
    Content:
    • Matter transforms from unstable to stable energy states.
    • Radioactive materials are substances which spontaneously emit various combinations of ionizing particles (alpha and beta) and gamma rays of ionizing radiation to become more stable.
    • Radioisotopes are isotopes (same number of protons but different numbers of neutrons) which are radioactive.
