Station __:

Station __:

When you analyze a rock sample you find that only 6.25% of the original Carbon-14 remains. Knowing that Carbon-14 has a half life of 5,730 years, how old is the rock approximately? Show your work.

Station __:

If a sample know to be about 11,460 years old has 400 Carbon-14 atoms, how many atoms were in the sample when the organism died? The half life of Carbon-14 is 5,730 years. Show your work.

Station __:

Sodium-24 has a half-life of 15 hours. How much sodium-24 will remain in an 18.0 g sample after 60 hours? Show your work.

Station __:
• After 42 days a 2.0 g sample of Phosphorus-32 contains only .25 g of the isotope. What is the half-life of phosphorus-32? Show your work.
Station __:

Polonium-214 has a relatively short half-life of 164 seconds. How many seconds would it take for 8.0 g of this isotope to decay to .25 g? Show your work.

Station __:

How many half-lives does it take for 16 g of Palladium-103 to decay to 1.0 g? Show your work.

Station __:

What percentage of the original sample of Copper-66 would remain after 51 minutes if the half-life is 5.10 minutes? Show your work.

Station __:

In 5.49 seconds, 1.20 g of Argon-35 decays to leave only 0.15 g. What is the half life of Argon-35? Show your work.

Station __:

How much of a 30.0 gram sample of a substance will be left after 2 hours if the half-life is 15 minutes? Show your work

Station __:
• The half-life of Thorium-27 is 18.72 days. How many days are require for 5.5 grams to remain if you start with 88 grams? Show your work
Station __:

The half-life of Cobalt-60 is 5.26 years. If 25 grams are left after 36.82 years, how many grams were in the original sample? Show your work

Station __:
• The half life of Zinc-71 is 2.4 minutes. If one had 100 g at the beginning, how many grams would be left after 7.2 minutes. Show work.
Station __:

After 48 days, 2 grams of an original 128 gram sample remain. What is the half-life of the sample? Show work.

Station __:
• The half-life of Iodine-131 is about 8 days. What percentage of an Iodine-131 sample will remain after 40 days? Show work.
