There are three main types of radioactive decay: alpha, beta, and gamma. Let's
pause here a minute to define "decay." When an element decays the parent ...

a radioactive nuclei can decay by releasing an alpha, beta, ...
Radioactive decay rates are normally stated in terms of their half-lives, and the
half-life of a given nuclear species is related to its radiation risk. The different ...
The radioactive half-life for a given radioisotope is a measure of the tendency of
the nucleus to "decay" or "disintegrate" and as such is based purely upon that ...
Aug 12, 2008 ... Radioactivity and radioactive decay are spontaneous processes. Students often
struggle with this concept; therefore, it should be stressed that ...
This lesson simulates radioactive decay to develop the understanding of what we
mean by half-life.
