Although Geiger-Nuttall (GN) law gives a single straight line, if we consider the experimental data of alpha particle emitters including heavy and super heavy nuclei with proton numbers as large as 118, instead of getting a single linear path we observe several linear segments with different slopes and intercepts. This problem is overcome when the experimental results in logarithm form are plotted as a function of Viola-Seaborg (VS) parameters with values of parameters set by hand. By using the…
