Radiations from Radioactive Substances

£16.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Sir Ernest Rutherford (1871-1937) was a New Zealand-born physicist who has become known as the 'father of nuclear physics' for his discovery of the so-called planetary structure of atoms. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1908. His co-authors, James Chadwick and Charles D. Ellis also made significant discoveries in the field of nuclear physics, with Chadwick discovering the neutron particle in 1932. Research in nuclear physics in the 1930s had become focused on investigating the natures of alpha, beta and gamma radiation and their effects on matter and atomic structure. This volume provides a definitive account of the state of research into these types of radiation in 1930, explaining the theory and process behind inferring the structure of the atom and the structure of the nucleus.

This book is 1951 reprint of the 1930 book - "Reprinted with corrections".

This is an ex-library book. There is shelf wear and rubbing to the covers. There is a library sticker and card holder on the inside of the front cover. There is a tape repair where the front cover and front free end paper meet. There is creasing to the rear free end paper. Internally, the pages are clean and the binding is firm.
