A radium-226 sample initially contains 0.112mol. How much radium-226 is left in the sample after 6400 years. The half-life of radium-226 is 1600 years.

long way.

k = 0.693/t_{1/2}

ln(No/N) = kt

No = 0.112 mol

N = unknown

k from above.

t = 6400 years.

shorter way.

0.112*(1/2^n)

0.112*(1/2^6400/1600)

0.112*(1/2^4) = N
