How much time in years (assume a 365 day yr) would it take for a 1.6678g sample of 239Np to decay to a mass of 0.8671g if it has a half life of 2.030*10^5s

    k = 0.693/t1/2
    Substitute k into the equation below.

    ln(No/N) = kt
    No = 1.6878
    N = 0.8671
    k fro above.
    Solve for t (in seconds) and change to years.
