The aim of this activity is to make you familiar with modelling technique and to use modelling to create a model of radioactive decay and to verify it with the experimental results.


In this activity you are going to create model and verify it with the given experimental results.  This activity is based on ESTABLISH IBSE activity whereby students have to measure radioactive decay (from unit: Medical Imaging, Activity 3.2). For your convenience the measurement data of a radioactive decay are included.  Follow the original student activity as presented within the unit on Medical Imaging.
