View Resource Particle Trappin'

This interactive game is from Fermilab's Fermilabyrinth project, which aims to "develop an understanding of the operations and experiments that take place in the Fermilab accelerator and detector halls and the scientific ideas they explore." In it, visitors can add or subtract slabs of lead and uranium to stop all particles in the accelerator beam and measure their energies and mass.

View Resource Nuclear Chemistry

This page, from the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill Chemistry Fundamentals program and the Shodor Education Foundation, discusses five different types of radioactive decay: alpha, beta negative, gamma, positron emission, and electron capture. After examining the numerous equations, students can test their dating skills by solving three practice problems. Solutions are included.

View Resource Atomic Spectroscopy: A Compendium of Basic Ideas, Notation, Data, and Formulas

Hosted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), this article by W. Martin and W. Wiese introduces the basics of atomic structure and spectra. With regard to structure, there is an emphasis on terminology and notation. Topics of discussion include wavelengths, intensities, shapes of spectral lines, and LS coupling. Originally appearing in the Atomic, Molecular, and Optical...

View Resource The Particle Adventure

The US Department of Energy, National Science Foundation (NSF), and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) cosponsor the Particle Data Group. This group makes available the Particle Adventure Website, an "interactive tour of the inner workings of the atom." This site provides a very brief introduction to the theory of fundamental particles and forces, and particle decay. Different paths...
