Consider a radioactive nucleus A which decays to a stable nucleus C through the following sequence: A→B→C Here B is an intermediate nuclei which is also radioactive. Considering that there are N0 atoms of A initially, plot the graph showing the variation of number of atoms of A and B versus time.

As time increases, NA falls off exponentially,
the number of atoms of B increases, becomes maximum and finally decays to
