Homework Help: Radioactivity

Posted by Lana on Tuesday, June 2, 2009 at 2:42pm.

When first discovered alpha, beta, and gamma radioactivity were referred to as alpha rays, beta rays, and gamma rays. Now we refer to alpha particles and beta particles, but still use the term gamma rays. What type of particles are alpha and beta commonly known as? What type of ray is gamma commonly known as?

I tried searching for this online but am having a really difficult time finding it. Can someone please help me?
