half of 24110 is 12055
anonymous
  • anonymous
so 239* (1/2)^12055?

woops i mean -239*(1/2)^12055=

No thats incorrect http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exponential_decay

lamda is a decay constant, it is equal to ln2/half life
experimentX
  • experimentX
sorry for wrong information ... decay constant = ln2/(half life)

oh ok so -239*(ln2/12055)
experimentX
  • experimentX
no ... just (ln2/24110) and also change 24110 to seconds. ie (ln2/24110*364.25*24*60*60)

239 is name of isotope of plutonium

just 239? or negative
experimentX
  • experimentX
this is you answer (ln2/(24110*364.25*24*60*60))

i dont need to solve?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exponential_decay#Half-life and also look for decay constant here ... you dont need to solve
