    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Help. Confused

    I am assuming that the term nuclear radiation means radiation emitted from the nucleus?
    Are there only three types of nuclear radiation?
    Does Radioactivity have the same meaning as nuclear radiation or is nuclear radiation a subset of radiaoctivity?
    Does radioactivity come from any other source than the nucleus.
    Is all radiation nucleus

    Does anyone really know?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
