An Excel[TM] Model of a Radioactive Series
Andrews, D. G. H.
Physics Education, v44 n1 p 48-52 Jan 2009
A computer model of the decay of a radioactive series, written in Visual Basic in Excel[TM], is presented. The model is based on the random selection of cells in an array. The results compare well with the theoretical equations. The model is a useful tool in teaching this aspect of radioactivity. (Contains 4 figures.)
