    The evolution of heat from radium and the radio-active substances is, in a sense, a secondary effect, as it measures the radiant energy transformed into heat energy by the active matter itself and whatever surrounds it. Let us repeat, therefore, that the total amount of energy pent up in a single atom of radium almost passes our powers of. His professional literary works include “Radium and Other Radio-active Substances,” the first book in the world published upon the subject, and which has gone through several editions here and abroad, and important papers before engineering and scientific societies, articles in the encyclopedias and technical periodicals. Radium, September 9, no.6 "Devoted to the chemistry, physics and therapeutics of radium and other radio-active substances." Includes bibliographical material No more published /5(4).

Radium, and Other Radio-active Substances; Polonium, Actinium, and Thorium is a book published in by William Joseph Hammer, when he was about 50 years book is the text of a lecture delivered at a meeting of the American Institute of Electrical : William Joseph Hammer.

Page 16 - The results of the investigation of radio-active minerals, announced in the preceding chapter, led M. Curie and myself to endeavour to extract a new radio-active body from pitchblende. Our method of procedure could only be based on radio-activity, as we know of no other property of the hypothetical substance.

The following is Radium and radio-active substances book method pursued for a 5/5(1). Radio-Active Substances Paperback – Febru This book is a reproduction of Marie Curie’s doctoral thesis in which she proved that radium is a chemical element.

It was presented at the Sorbonne in This edition is an unabridged republication of the English translation.5/5(3). Polonium gives off α-rays only. Amongst the other radio-active substances, actinium seems to behave like radium, but the study of its radiation has not yet advanced so far as in the case of radium.

As regards the faintly radio-active bodies, we know to-day that uranium and thorium give rise to α-rays as well as β-rays (Becquerel, Rutherford). Radium, and other radio-active substances polonium, actinium, and thorium.

With a consideration of phosphorescent and fluorescent substances, the properties and applications of selenium, and the treatment of disease by the ultra-violet light. Radium is a chemical element with the symbol Ra and atomic number It is the sixth element in group 2 of the periodic table, also known Radium and radio-active substances book the alkaline earth radium is silvery-white, but it readily reacts with nitrogen (rather than oxygen) on exposure to air, forming a black surface layer of radium nitride (Ra 3 N 2).All isotopes of radium are highly radioactive, with the most Pronunciation: /ˈreɪdiəm/ ​(RAY-dee-əm).

Radioactive substances are atoms that decay naturally. They can give off alpha particles, beta particles and gamma radiation. Unlike X-ray sources they cannot be turned off, so their control is more difficult. Sources for industrial radiography such as iridium are emitters of gamma radiation and they can be used to radiograph thick sections.
