Although radioactive decay involves discrete events of nuclear disintegration, the number of events is so large that it can be treated like a continuum and the methods of calculus employed to predict the behavior. The result from the decay probability can be put in the differential form:
where = decay ...
This is a problem regarding differential equations and half-life of an isotope.
