Half-life of Radioisotopes
For a radioactive isotope we can define half-life in two ways:
The time for the number of nuclei in the sample to halve
The time for the activity to fall to half its original level
Half-life: Example A
A simple example exploring the number of nuclei left after a number of half lives.
Half-life: Example B
A slightly more complex mathematical example.
