The broadly used term lime connotes calcium-containing inorganic materials, in which carbonates, oxides and hydroxides of calcium, silicon, magnesium, aluminium, and iron predominate.By contrast, quicklime specifically applies to the single chemical compound calcium oxide.Beta particles originate in the nucleus, presumably by breakdown of a neutron into its proton-electron components.Gamma rays are released during both types of radioactive decay.

China is by far the world's largest producer, with a total of around 170 million tonnes per year.
The United States is the next largest, with around 20 million tonnes per year.t of quicklime.
An example of this is the NIST-F1 atomic clock, one of the national primary time and frequency standards of the United States.
The accuracy of an atomic clock depends on two factors.
