Since radioactive decay is a first-order process, the decay rate for a particular nuclide is commonly given as the half-life. Given that potassium contains 0.0118% 40K, which has a half life of 1.27×109 years, how many disintegrations per second are there in a gram of KCl?
The question belongs to Chemical Engineering and it is about a radioactive decay of first-order process. The radioactive decay for KCl has to be calculated keeping mind the presence of 40K.
