Short promotional description of the course
In dit college worden basisbegrippen uit atoom- en kernfysica behandeld. Uit de atoomfysica komen aan de orde: golven en deeltjes, atoommodellen van Rutherford en Bohr, Schrödinger vergelijking, kwantumgetallen, röntgenstraling en röntgenbuis. Uit de kernfysica komen aan de orde: opbouw en elementaire eigenschappen van de atoomkern, isotopenkaart, bindingsenergie, atoommassa, Q-waarde, radioactiviteit met alpha-, beta- en gamma-verval.
Short promotional description of the course
In this course the basic notions from atom and nuclear physics are treated. From atomic physics we treat: waves and particles, atom models of Rutherford and Bohr, the Schrödinger equation, quantum numbers, x-rays and x-ray tubes. From nuclear physics are treated: structure and elementary properties of the nucleus, chart of nuclides, binding energies, atom masses, Q- values, radioactivity with alpha, beta and gamma decay
