    I have an essay on radioactive decay, here is the title 'Explore the nature of radioactive decay and Discuss it's applications'



    Does anyone know any good reference material for this kind of thing?
    Equivilence of mass and energy
    Alpha, Beta, Gamma
    Nuclear power
    Med Physics
    Carbon Dating
    Any other Applications




    Any Help would be much appreciated, thanks :)
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data



    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    Do you have a book recommended for your course? That would be my first port of call.

    Well in that case may I suggest looking for a physics book. Most highschool level books should have information on all the points you mentioned. There should be plenty available in local or school libraries.
