half life of tritium is 12.5 years. how much will remain after 100 years if you started wit 256 grams?

  • Chemistry -

    First determine k.
    k = 0.593/t1/2, then substitute the value of k into the equation below.

    ln(256/N) = k(100)
    Solve for N in grams.

    Thanks so much!

    I made two typos. k = 0.693/t1/2
