chemistry help~~~~ Please!!!

Sodium-24, t1/2 = 15.0 hr, can be used to study the sodium balance in animals. If a saline solution containing 25 μg of 24^Na is injected into an animal, how long can the study continue before only 1 μg is left?

Show work please!

  1. k = 0.693/t1/2
    Then ln(No/N) = kt.
    No = 25
    N = 1
    k from above.
    t = solve for this.
