Exponential Functions - Example on Radioactive Decay and Half-Life

in DTubelast month (edited)


A while ago I made a video on exponential functions but didn't get the chance to go over some very useful examples. Which is why I made this video, where I go over an example on radioactive decay and determining the exponential function of Strontium-90 decay if we are given it's half life. I also go over what half life is and show how to determine the required time to decay to a certain mass or the mass after a certain time. This concept is very important especially in dating fossils and other materials and has led to good estimates of the age of the earth. So make sure to watch this video!

I don't always measure decay of radioactive material but when I do it usually follows an exponential curve ;)
