1) Nobelium has a half-life of 1 hour. If you start with 1 kg, how much will you have by this time tomorrow?

2) You have 90 g of Lawrencium. You step away to watch one episode of "everybody loves raymond." when you return to your scientific studies, you only have 0.088g of lawrencium. what is its half-life?

    1) 1 kg * (1/2)^24
