Homework Help: Physics HELP HELP

Posted by Anonymous on Wednesday, November 10, 2010 at 5:54pm.

(for some reason I keep getting this wrong. I put 90 for c, 5.6 for h and 22 for M(x), Then I took the natural log of both sides, but I keep getting it wrong)

The mass of a radioactive element at time x is given by the equation below, where c is the original mass and h is the half-life of the element. The half-life of a substance is 5.6 years. How long will it take for 90 grams to decay to 22 grams? (Round your answer to one decimal place.)
M(x) = c (.5^{x/h})
