after 47.5 years?

after 1008 years?

    k = 0.693/t1/2
    ln(No/N) = kt
    Substitute into equation 1 and solve for k, the substitute into equation 2 and solve for N. No will be 18, 47.5, 1008 years.

    .....it's actually asking for the % left after so many years

  • chemistry - ,

    So N = amount left.
    % = (N/No)*100 = ?
