My calculations show: if the half-life of Strontium-90 fallout residue is 28.9 years, then it would take:USA would launch all submarine nuclear missiles targeting Russian, and Chinese, population centers
* 96.0 years for the fallout to drop to 10% of the initial blast, and
* 192.0 years for the fallout to drop to 1% of the initial blast.
Please verify.
The formula is:
t = - 28.9y × (log 0.01 / log 2)
or
t = - half-life × (log (percentage / 100) / log 2)

Second question:
I am unable to calculate how much exactly nuclear fallout would be generated by Mr. Putin's 5977 nukes,
in the theoretical case the "weak" West doesn't respond and launch its own?
I am unable to calculate that, for I don't know how much Strontium-90 is generated from 1 kg of plutonium
in a fission explosion?
Of course, I am aware that there are other possibly more radioactive and more chemically toxic byproducts
of a nuclear explosion.
Would the mushroom clouds keep the radiation over the West alone, or do the winds blow like cyclones and
anticyclones from West to East and bring weather and fallout with them?
I am, of course, speaking of the theoretical case that Russian launches its missiles and the USA don't.
(Was that called Abraham's sacrifice in one of the movies discussing nuclear Armageddon?)
in the LORD
Amen
