There are 3.29g of iodine -126 remaining in a smple originally containing 26.3 g of Iodine - 126 the half life of Iodine - 126 is 13 days. How old is the sample?

At study hall test is after lunch and cant figure out htese 2 on my review packet

  • SCIENCE PLEASE HELP -

    WEll, follow the formula...

    amountremaining=Original*e^(-.692t/13)

    3.29/26/3= e^(-.692t/13)
    take the ln of each side
    -.207 = -.692t/13

    solve for t in days.
