Description: The applet below is a simulation of the law of radioactive decay. The red circles of this simulation symbolize 1000 atomic nuclei of a radioactive substance whose half-life period T1/2 amounts to 20 seconds. The diagram in the lower part of the applet represents the fraction of the nuclei that have not yet decayed at a given time t, predicted by the radioactive decay law.
