I'm currently undergoing an assignment in maths were it is is necessary to apply mathematical concepts to aspects in reality. Hence, I have chosen to model the radioactive decay of iodine 131, however I am required to plot the data of the radioactive decay of iodine 131, in order to find the equation rather than using the half-life. Is it possible to find experimental data for its decay.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I intend to find the equation of the function by graphing the data in order to get a negative exponential function.

If it helps my assignment is relevant to radioactive materials (iodine 131) leaked in the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster.

Anything would be greatly appreciated

Thanks
