Must be answered in report format giving data formulas and results.
Radioactive decay is a very useful tool in physics and has many real world applications. So what you are going to do this week is look at a plot if a radioactive decay and determines time lines and eventually the isotope in question.
1) Determine the half-life of this isotope using the equation
where is the half-life.
2) Determine how many particles are present at 4000, 6000, 8000 and 10000 years using the graph and the equation.
3) What are some applications of an isotope like this?
4) Once you have the half-life, what do you think this isotope is?
