Google Hangout #1 Radioactivity

Posted by Mr Mallon on April 9, 2014

Hi Physicists here is the first Google hangout which I gave this morning.
Great to work with talented tech savvy pupils.
Apologies for my calculation error, well spotted physics students.
Sorry for the mix up at the end when I tried to get back from screenshare and a thanks to Martin Cunningham for use of his notes.
