decay

http://github.com/goerz/decay

The decay program is a computer version of a high school lab experiment in which a board of dice is used to analyze radioactive decay. There is the possibility to include up to four unstable isotopes in a decay process.

Author: Michael Goerz

This code is in the public domain

Install

No install necessary. Download the executables and run them in a DOS prompt.

Usage

Run any of the four variations of the program:

DECAY.EXE       - Program that simulates the radioactive decay from a
                  radioactive parent-atom to a stable daughter-atom

DECAY2.EXE      - Program that simulates the radiative decay from a
                  radioactive parent-atom to a stable daughter-atom
                  with up to 4 unstable daughter-atoms in between.

DECAY_S.EXE     - Program that simulates the radioactive decay from a
                  radioactive parent-atom to a stable daughter-atom.
                  This programs accepts only the path "A:\REPORTS\..."
                  for the report-file in order to prevent the user to
                  overwrite a file on the hard-disc

DECAY2_S.EXE    - Program that simulates the radiative decay from a
                  radioactive parent-atom to a stable daughter-atom
                  with up to 4 unstable daughter-atoms in between.
                  This programs accepts only the path "A:\REPORTS\..."
                  for the report-file in order to prevent the user to
                  overwrite a file on the hard-disc

The program will record the number of all isotopes for each throw in the output file, for analysis.
