Module 1: Radiological Fundamentals
Instructor's Notes
c.
Electrons
1) Electrons are in orbit around the nucleus of an atom.
2) Electrons have a negative electrical charge.
3) This negative charge is equal in magnitude to the proton's
positive charge.

the number of protons
changes, the element
changes.

have the same number of
protons, but can have a
different number of
neutrons. This is called an
isotope.

2. Stable and unstable atoms
Only certain combinations of neutrons and protons result in
stable atoms.
a. If there are too many or too few neutrons for a given
number of protons, the nucleus will not be stable.
b. The unstable atom will try to become stable by giving off
excess energy. This energy is in the form of particles or rays
(radiation). These unstable atoms are known as radioactive
atoms.
