Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle coronavirus.

This paper recalls the history of the Becquerel family, the fascinating time of the discovery of radioactivity as well as some important related research published before the radium age.

Henri Becquerel was the third in the line of a family of scientists which Cited by: 5. He is the author and editor of several books, including Radioactivity; Introduction and History, From the Quantum to Quarks published by Elsevier inwhich received an Honorable Mention in the PROSE Awards and the “Handbook of Radioactivity Analysis” now in its fourth edition.

Antoine Henri Becquerel (born Decem in Paris, France), known as Henri Becquerel, was a French physicist who discovered radioactivity, a process in which an atomic nucleus emits particles because it is unstable.

He won the Nobel Prize in Physics with Pierre and Marie Curie, the latter of whom was Becquerel’s graduate student. Biography: Henri Antoine Becquerel ( – ) Henri Antoine Becquerel was an outstanding French physicist. He won the Nobel Prize in Physics for his discovery of natural radioactivity, together with Marie Skłodowska-Curie and Peter Curie, who studied this phenomenon in detail.

Between andhe measured theFile Size: KB. Antoine Henri Becquerel () Contributions: Received the Noble Prize in physics for being the first to discover radioactivity as a phenomenon separate from that of x-rays and document the differences between the two. Henri Becquerel learned of Roentgen's discovery of x-rays through the fluorescence that some materials produce.

Antoine Henri Becquerel (15 December – 25 August ) was a French physicist, Nobel laureate, and the discoverer of radioactivity, for work in this field he, along with Marie Skłodowska-Curie and Pierre Curie, received the Nobel Prize in Physics.

The SI unit for radioactivity, the becquerel (Bq), is named after him. The SI unit for measuring the amount of radioactivity is the becquerel (symbol Bq).The becquerel is named in honour of Henri Becquerel, a French physicist who discovered radioactivity in One becquerel (1Bq) is equal to 1 disintegration per second.

An older unit of radioactivity is the curie. The curie was originally defined as equivalent to the number of disintegrations that one gram of. Becquerel conducted some additional experiments and during reported on the properties of this radiation, which later came to be called radioactivity.

A few of his observations turned out to be wrong, but others helped people understand how this radioactivity was different from x-rays. The Nobel Prize in Physics was divided, one half awarded to Antoine Henri Becquerel "in recognition of the extraordinary services he has rendered by his discovery of spontaneous radioactivity", the other half jointly to Pierre Curie and Marie Curie, née Sklodowska "in recognition of the extraordinary services they have rendered by their joint researches on the radiation phenomena.

On March 1,French physicist Henri Becquerel while experimenting with X-rays and photographic plates discovered radioactivity along with Marie Curie and Pierre Curie, for which all three won the Nobel Prize in Physics.

“I developed the photographic plates on the 1st of March, expecting to find the images very weak. Instead the silhouettes appeared with great intensity. Henri Becquerel discovered radioactivity by accident. It was one of the most significant scientific findings in history.

Antoine Henri Becquerel () was a French physicist and winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics. Becquerel was born in Paris, France on Decem He was the son of a professor of applied physics, Alexander Becquerel. He began his studies. Henri Becquerel was a nuclear physicist at the École Polytechnique, specializing in radiation and radioactivity.

He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in "in recognition of the extraordinary services he has rendered by his discovery of spontaneous radioactivity." Important Dates. Decem Birth, Paris (France.

The Becquerel rays from radium, on the contrary, arise from a substance dug out of the ground which emits them, apparently, forever and forever, as it has emitted them through the countless centuries of the past, without any extrinsic influence.

It is their natural intrinsic property—a new property of matter—radio-activity. The becquerel (English: /bɛkəˈrɛl/; symbol: Bq) is the SI derived unit of radioactivity. One becquerel is defined as the activity of a quantity of radioactive material in which one nucleus decays per second.

The becquerel is named after Henri Becquerel, who shared a Nobel Prize in Physics with Pierre Named after: Henri Becquerel. Henri Becquerel discovered of a type of radiation discharged from a uranium compound that was capable of passing through sheets of matter opaque to ordinary light.

Curie then began a systematic examination of a large number of chemical elements and their compounds to test whether they possessed the “radioactive” property of uranium.

Antoine Henri Becquerel (/ ˌ b ɛ k ə ˈ r ɛ l /; [2] French: [ɑ̃ʁi bɛkʁɛl]; 15 December – 25 August ) was a French engineer, physicist, scientist, Nobel laureate, and the first person to discover evidence of work in this field he, along with Marie Skłodowska-Curie (Marie Curie) and Pierre Curie, [3] received the Nobel Prize in Physics.

In Becquerel isolated electrons in radiation, and in he presented the first evidence of radioactive transformation. He also authored detailed studies of the physical properties of cobalt, nickel, and ozone, studied how crystals absorb light, and researched the polarization of : InHenri becquerel observed that uranium salts could cause a plate covered by black paper to react as if light had reached it.

Later, Becquerel demonstrated that the radiation emitted by uranium shared certain characteristics with X rays but, unlike X rays, could be deflected by a magnetic field and therefore must consist of charged particles. For his discovery of radioactivity, Becquerel was awarded the Nobel Prize for physics.

(–). The French physicist who discovered radioactivity through his investigations of uranium and other substances was Henri Becquerel. In he shared the Nobel prize for physics with the chemists Pierre and Marie Curie.

Radioactivity is the ascribed to the emitting or relating to the emission of ionizing radiation or g: Henri Becquerel. Atom - Atom - Discovery of radioactivity: Like Thomson’s discovery of the electron, the discovery of radioactivity in uranium by French physicist Henri Becquerel in forced scientists to radically change their ideas about atomic structure.

Radioactivity demonstrated that the atom was neither indivisible nor immutable. Instead of serving merely as an inert matrix for electrons, the atom.

Decemwas the birthday of French physicist Antoine Henri Becquerel, who discovered a completely unknown property of matter in March Becquerel Some might say Becquerel’s discovery of “radioactivity” was a lucky accident—but as the Roman philosopher Seneca wrote in the 1st century, “Luck is what happens when.

Henri Becquerel received the Nobel Prize for physics in “for his discovery of spontaneous radioactivity”. At the same time, half of the prize for that year was conferred on the Curies. He attended the award ceremony to receive the award with his own hands and delivered the Nobel lecture on December Cited by: 1.

In this way, Antoine-Henri Becquerel deduced that this phenomenon was characteristic of the uranium atom, thus discovering natural radioactivity. After several experiments, he concluded that natural radioactivity was the property of some substances, such as uranium, radium and polonium to emit radiation without any external cause/5(7).
