. The time required for half of an original sample of a radioactive nuclide to decay is referred to as the _________ of the nuclide.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The time required for half of an original sample of a radioactive nuclide to decay is referred to as the........ nuclide.

Concept Introduction:

Half-life is the measurement of time required for the conversion of half of the reactant to product and can be indicated as t1 / 2.

A reactant reacts to produce product duration of time whereas if time to be recorded for the completion of half of the reaction then it gets denoted by t1 / 2.

Explanation

Half-life of a nuclide is the time required for the half of the sample to reduce to stable nuclide. In half-life the concentration of nuclide decreases by half.

Half-life is denoted as t1 / 2. For any radioactive decay that follows the first order kinetics, it is calculated as fol...
