What Is A Half-life?
Chemistry / Elements and Compounds

Natural uranium contains 99% U238 and only about 0.7% U 235 by weight. When isotopes break down, or decay, they usually split apart into two smaller atoms. Excess neutrons and protons are often sent flying off through space, taking the excess energy of the atoms with the continue reading this fact

What Are Aerosols?
Chemistry / Chemical Reactions

Multiple fires are burning across the sourthern part of the African continent in September 2000, as shown by data from the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) on board the NOAA 14 satellite. Aerosols are tiny particles suspended in the air. Most occur naturally, originating from volcanoes, dust storms, forest and grassland fires, living vegetation, and sea spray (Figure 1). Human activiti continue reading this fact
