What is the process of radiometric hookup

Pics Gallery What is the process of radiometric hookup.

Radioactive decay also known as nuclear decayradioactivity or nuclear radiation is the process by which an unstable atomic nucleus loses energy in terms of mass in its rest frame by emitting radiationsuch as an alpha particlebeta particle with neutrino or only a neutrino in the case of electron captureor a gamma ray or electron in the case of internal conversion.

A material containing such unstable nuclei is considered radioactive. Certain highly excited short-lived nuclear states can decay through neutron emissionor more rarely, proton emission.

Radioactive decay is a stochastic i. According to quantum theoryit is impossible to predict when a particular atom will decay, [1] [2] [3] regardless of how long the atom has existed.

However, for a collection of atoms, the collection's expected decay rate is characterized in terms of their measured decay constants or half-lives.
