The spells interred with Egyptian mummies came from the Book of the Dead. For more information, check this site. http://www.crystalinks.com/egyptafterlife.html What is the collection of spells that was buried with mummy? Any
if a egyptian mummy has 61% carbon-14 how long ago was it buried? Take a 100 g initial sample. Now there are 61 g C-14. Use ln(No/N) = kt where No = 100 N = 61 You will need k and you may obtain that from k = 0.693/t1/2. Look up
