Half-Life Action (2)!!!
- Tim Brzezinski
Recall the half-life of a substance is defined to be the amount of time it takes for half of ANY AMOUNT of that substance to decay. If you slide the "Slide Me Slowly" slider, you'll see a dynamic illustration of this. The applet below allows you to adjust the following: The initial amount of substance (adjustable with movable y-intercept or input box on right.) The half-life of the substance (adjustable with input box or slider.) You can also enter exact values of a certain amount of time OR a certain amount of substance left to see the corresponding coordinates (x, y) that relate to that piece of information.
