yassss! this the video is great but it went a little too fast for me

Amie Burnell says:

so helpful!! I was really confused on the different types of decay and this cleared it up!

Michael500ca says:

Yay! Chemistry!

Sadie says:

Umm why start with isotopes? Why not the 101 stuff

21fps says:

I’m glad because I’m just about to start school taking ac chem

Sam Mosqueda says:

Yessss I’m a chemistry teacher thank you!!!

Chelsea Conlin says:

This is a great idea!

Vasek Harna says:

Yes! I love it!

David O'Connor says:

Is nuclear fission a 4th thing that could happen, eg @ 3:00? Ie split into two atoms roughly half the size of the original?

David says:

I need to know this stuff – thanks!

nhendley says:

As a high school science teacher, glad to hear about these videos. But could you repost the video without the first 30 seconds of ad in it? The ad should be a separate video, IMO

Darkev says:

Yesssss finally some chemistry!!!

Maui0895 says:

Nice. You guys are back with great content!

The Last Targaryen says:

But how do you see an atom?

Hachi05 says:

Love it! Keep this new series coming! ❤️

Danny Vasquez says:

This good. Had to pause it like 20 times, though. I'm used to the pacing of Physics Videos by Eugene Khutoryansky.

Dragon Skunk Studio says:

Who is this video for? I'm more confused than when I started this video.
This is one of those I am already a nuclear physicist who just needs a refresher course before I fix the reactor core?
And I still don't know what an isotope is.

Delta Beta says:

Why are group 1 and 2 elements called alkaline metals even when don't possess any metallic properties?

Yamen S. says:

Wow, thanks. I really needed to brush up chemistry knowledge, as I haven't used since high school.

Benjamin Easter says:

I really love these videos! I'm a chemistry & film student at Gustavus Adolphus College and combining the two has been a dream of mine. I would love to be involved with this channel.
