What is the law of decay?

The rate of decay at any time (i.e. no. of atoms that disintegrate per second) is directly proportional to the number of radioactive atoms present in the sample at that time.T (MORE)

What is the decay constant?

Decay constant is the ratio of the amount of radioactive substance which disintegrates in a unit time to the amount of substance present . It is also defined as the reciproc (MORE)

What is an equation for the orbital decay of two 1.4 solar mass neutron stars orbiting each other at some given radius?

dr/dt=(-64/5)(G^3/c^5)(m1*m2)((m1+m2)/r^3)   t=r^4*[15*5/(64*16*4)]*[(c^5/G^3)/(m1*m2(m1+m2))]    => t =  (60*10^3)^4*(75/4096)*((3*10^8)^5/((6.673*10^-11)^3)/((1.4*1 (MORE)

What is orbit?

A path the Earth and other planets take around the Sun.due to which we have diffrent seasons.the length of earths orbit is 938,900,000 km and earth moves at the velocity of 1 (MORE)

What is decay?

Decay means to rot or to become decomposed. For example: The tomato started to decay. Hope this helps!!

Why do things decay?

Decay refers to the decomposition of dead organic matter into  simpler chemical compounds. It is caused by microorganisms called  saprophytes, which break down the organic m (MORE)

Does wood decay?

  Yes, if it is not cared for well it decays faster. Wood is a carbon compound. All carbon compounds (people and animals included) all decay when we die. I'm sure cutting (MORE)

How does americium decay?

Americium is a transuranic radioactive chemical element that has the symbol Am and atomic number 95.Its most common isotopes are 241Am and 243Am.241Am decays by emission of an (MORE)
