  4. Half-Life • The length of a half-life is related to how active the elements are. (This is measured in curies)

  5. Half-Life • Problem: • If 13153I has a half-life of 8.04 days, how long will it take until only 25% of it is left?

  6. Half-Life • 2 half-lives = 8.04 + 8.04 • 16.08 days

  7. Half-Life • Problem: • If a fossil only has 12.5% of 146C remaining, how old is it? • 5730 x 3 = 17190 years

  8. Half-Life • Problem: • If you start with 25 grams of 13354Xe, which has a half-life of 5.25 days, how much will be left after 15.75 days?
