Continuous examples, Probability of a nucleus decaying during observation, 1-exp(-λt), Probability of a neutron moves x without interaction, exp(-Σx), where Σ can be assumed to be the inverse of the mean free path i.e. the distance a neutron travels without interaction on average.

My point is that I don't really have an idea as to how these continuous probabilities are derived. Any assistance?
