Chem HW help please.....?
the question is... "How did Becquerel demonstrate that the radioactive particles were charged, unlike roentgen's x-rays?"
- Steve OLv 79 years agoFavorite Answer
"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 1903 Nobel Prize for physics."
