**DrBob222**, Thursday, May 12, 2011 at 5:33pmIs that 99.9% or some other value? You have no units.

k = 0.693/t_{1/2}

Substitute and solve for k, then substitute k into the equation below.

ln(No/N) = kt

No = some convenient number like 100.

N will be 0.1 if 99.9% of the atoms have decayed.

k from above.

Solve for t (in the same units as the half life is given).
