In many cases, a parent nucleus, level 1, decays at a rate R12 into a daughter, level 2, that is not stable. The daughter can proceed with decay to level 3 with a rate R23. In this section, R23=2*R12 as in Figure 15-13 in the text.
Section 3 Exercises:
The number boxes above allow you to change the different rates. Once you have entered the new rates, click "Set". A copy of the graph window may be made by right-clicking in the graph window. This window is static and may then be used for comparison purposes with a graph with new rates.
