**jimbo**, Saturday, April 27, 2013 at 7:28pmafter 30 days 50% of the sample would have decayed. 50% / 30 days gives you a daily decay rate of 1.6666667. multiply this by 16.2 to give 27. 27 is the percentage of the sample that has decayed after 16.2 days so 100-27 = 73%

**DrBob222**, Saturday, April 27, 2013 at 8:15pmI don't believe that 1.6667 is a constant. For example, at the end of another 30 days it shows 50% and that + te 50 already gone is now zero remaining when in fact there is 25% remaining after 60 days.

k = 0.693/t_{1/2}. Solve for k and substitute into the equation below.

ln(No/N) = kt

No = 100%

N = % remaining

k from above

t = 16.5 days.

Solve for N.
