2.1 First-Order Decay Expressions 2.1 (a) Statistical Considerations (1905) Let: p = probability of a particular atom disintegrating in time interval t. Since this is a pure random event; that is, all decays are independent of past and present information; then each t gives the same probability again. Total time = t = n t
