1 of three things happen: alpha, beta, gamma decay)
3. Define half-life, List the half-life of 10 elements and give 3 practical examples
4. List 5 applications of radiation in our daily life and give examples of each, how it made, who uses it
for what and where
5. Describe 5 disadvantages of radioactive
