**DrBob222**, Friday, November 11, 2011 at 8:02pmk = 0.693/t

_{1/2}

Substitute k into the equation below.

ln(No/N) = kt

No = 10.3 ppm

N = 1.0 ppm

k from above.

t = ?

**DrBob222**, Friday, November 11, 2011 at 9:42pmAll you need to do is to substitute 28.8 years into equation 1 I gave you to solve for k, then substitute k into the

ln(No/N) = kt and solve for t.

I TOLD you what to substitute for No and I told you what to substitute for N and k. You have only to solve for t. t is approximately 100 years for the Sr to decay to about 1.0 ppm.
