Over four years, working under poor conditions and spending their own funds, the Curies processed more than a ton of uranium ore to isolate a mere gram of radium salt.

The emission of these rays is called nuclear radioactivity, or simply radioactivity. A nucleus that spontaneously destroys part of its mass to emit radiation is said to decay.Thus, (A − 1, Z) means that the mass number is one less than before, but the atomic number didn’t change.Alpha particles carry a positive charge, beta particles carry a negative charge, and gamma rays are neutral.Radioactive decay occurs when an unstable atomic nucleus loses energy by emitting energy in the form of emitted particles or electromagnetic waves, called radiation.Isotopes are atoms of the same element (thereby having the same number of protons) which differ in the number of neutrons in their nucleus.
