The half life of U238 is 4.5 x 10^9 yr. A sample of rock of 1.6 g produces 29 dis/sec. Assuming all radioactivity is due to U238 find percent by mass of U 238. I have tried ln(t)/ln(0)= -kt and still cannot get the answer What I get is A) 4.5x10^9 x365x60x60x24=1.419x10^17 for...
A store had 896 swimsuits that were marked to sell at $46.99. Each suit was marked down $15.90. Find the reduced price using the formula M = S N, where M is the markdown, S is the original selling price, and N is the reduced price.
I took a look at this question to see if I copied it correctly, and it does NOT say how much of the solution was used. It does use mols as the unit. Dr. Bob, I am not sure what you mean by "decays into Argon." I realize that the 38 CL decays to Argon, but how would t...
I posted this before and am sorry to post again and take up room but it is due this week and I'd like to understand how to get the answer (no one has responded yet): question The nuclide 38cl decays by beta emission with a half life of 40min. A sample of .40 m of H38cl is ...
I posted this before a few hours ago without a reply yet but decided I would add more detail: question The nuclide 38cl decays by beta emission with a half life of 40min. A sample of .40 m of H38cl is placed in a 6.24 liter container. After 80 min the pressure is 1650 mmHg. Wh...
The nuclide 38cl decays by beta emission with a half life of 40min. A sample of .40 m of H38cl is placed in a 6.24 liter container. After 80 min the pressure is 1650 mmHg. What is temperature of container? I have tried calculating the decay rate of the 38cl and then plugging i...
write a balanced equation for the chain reaction AL2O3
is that 2C = 0.0229885?
OK but really about part C I'm confused. I think it should be 25% or 0.25 but it is wrong!!!!
solve by the elimination method x + y = -2 4x - 6y = -3
