is dn/dt proportional to N or activity{R}.nwhat is relation between R & N

Expert Answer:

Dear student

The rate at which nuclei decay(dn/dt) is proportional to N, the number of nuclei in the radioactive sample.

decay rate(R)

 R = -dN/N = λNoe-λt

or, R = R0 e-λt

Ro= Decay rate at time, t = 0.


Hope this helps.
