. An instrument that measures the rate of radioactive decay by

registering the ions and electrons produced as a radioactive

particle passes through a gas-filled chamber is called a(n)

_________ An instrument that measures radioactive decay by

sensing the flashes of light that the radiation produces in a

detector is called a(n) _____.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Interpret the instrument used for measure the rate of decay of radioactive material and instrument for measure the rate of decay of radioactive material by sensing the light.

Concept Introduction:

Radioactive decay is the decaying of an element to smaller nuclide by releasing either alpha or beta particle. In alpha decay, an alpha particle with mass 4m and electron 2e removed from nuclide while in beta decay two type of decay are possible beta (+) and beta (-).

Explanation

Geiger counter is an instrument that is used in measurement of the rate of radioactive decay with the help of ions and electrons released during the decay as the radioactive particles and passed through the chamber, filled with gas...
