State the law of radioactive decay. Show that the number of nuclei of radioactive material
decreases exponentially with time.

Solution :

The law of radioactive decay states that the rate of decay of nuclei present in a atom is directly proportional to the concentration of nuclei present (in other words directly proportional  to the number of nuclei).

Let us suppose that dN atoms disintegrate in small time dt.
