An Excel[TM] Model of a Radioactive Series
Physics Education Volume 44, Number 1, ISSN 0031-9120
A computer model of the decay of a radioactive series, written in Visual Basic in Excel[TM], is presented. The model is based on the random selection of cells in an array. The results compare well with the theoretical equations. The model is a useful tool in teaching this aspect of radioactivity. (Contains 4 figures.)
