caffeine has a half-life of 4.6 hours in the human body.. How long would it take 125 milligrams tritium to decay to 22 milligrams?

  • chemistry - ,

    Pray tell what does caffeine have to do with tritium?
    For tritium,
    k = 0.693/t1/2
    You will need to look up the half-life of tritium unless that is the "caffeine" half-life.
    Substitute k into the below equation.
    ln(No/N) = kt
    Nl = 125
    N = 22
    k = from above calculation.
    t = time. Solve for this. Note that the unit for time and the unit for half-life must be the same.
