'A radioactive element has a 0.5 probability of decaying to a more stable element after a particular time-span T.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What is the instantaneous decay rate per unit volume? In other words determine a general expression for the number of decay events occurring per unit volume between t=t1 and t=t2 as the difference between these two times t2-t1 approaches zero.'

This is the last part of a group presentation we have to prepare and has us all stumped. Any thoughts?
