Looking for some interactive demonstrations for radioactive decay?







Here are some interesting demonstrations to illustrate radioactive decay. The first link allows you to choose the half-life, up to 100s.

The following page contains a link to a fascinating interactive decay facility. You can choose the isotopoe, then watch the decay process for the isotope, with the associated  increase of the resulting stable nuclei. Considers some gamma-emitting radioactive isotopes  cobalt (Co60), iridium (Ir192), cesium (Cs137), ytterbium (Yb169), and thulium (Tm170).
