Uranium Isotope Decay
This Demonstration shows radioactive decay for the two most abundant uranium isotopes, U-238 and U-235. These have the form of exponential decay:[more]
where is the number of nuclei remaining at time (in years) for an initial number in the sample, and is the decay constant, which is specific to the individual isotope: for U-238 and for U-235. Decay graphs of U-238 (in blue) and U-235 (in orange) are plotted. Also shown (in green) is a generic decay curve for the selected decay constant. The red dots mark the half-life of each decay.[less]
