"Decay" in context

Decay is a natural process that occurs when something begins to break down. Decay is a part of the life cycle, allowing new materials and organisms to form. It can be seen in almost all aspects of the natural world, both in the physical environment and in living organisms. Physical examples of decay include rusting of metals and rotting of organic materials. Biological decay is seen in the breakdown of organisms or parts of organisms.

Decay occurs when molecules, atoms or particles become unstable. This instability causes them to break down further and become increasingly less organized.
