CONSTANCY OF RADIOACTIVE DECAY. Creation “scientists” commonly claim that the entire process of radioactive decay just isn’t constant.

CONSTANCY OF RADIOACTIVE DECAY. Creation “scientists” commonly claim that the entire process of radioactive decay just isn’t constant.

The types of radioactive decay and the evidence that decay is constant over the range of conditions undergone by the rocks available to scientists before discussing some of their claims, it is worth discussing briefly.

Many radioactive decay involves the ejection of just one or higher sub-atomic particles through the nucleus. Alpha decay takes place when an alpha particle (a helium nucleus), composed of two protons and two neutrons, is ejected through the nucleus for the moms and dad isotope. Beta decay involves the ejection of a beta particle (an electron) through the nucleus.
