Lifetime of a decaying nucleus changes with temperature?

  1. May 28, 2010 #1
    hello,

    does the mean lifetime of a decaying nucleus changes with temperature?
    I generally think that mean lifetime of a given nucleus doesn't change with temperature.

    thanks for your valuable input.

    hello,
    thank you very much.
    I actually thought that mean lifetime of a given nucleus is always a constant..doesn't depend on temperature (i did not find any notes on internet)..I am just studying the relax. phenon. compared to life time, stuffs..
