Potassium 39 ALT B

Potassium 39 ALT B

Atom - 1 month 1 week ago

Potassium 39 is a stable isotope as is the K41. K40 is an unstable isotope, however its decay rate (half-life) is a Billion years or so.

K40 will have another 'neutron'/proton and it is not difficult to see how that would result in a second Lithium nuclet turning the K40 into Ca40.
