(a) Find the general solution of the following differential
my, —— y = 25523;.
If possible, ﬁnd an explicit solution. (b) Tritium, 3H, is an isotope of hydrogen that is sometimes used as a biochemical tracer.
Suppose that 100 mg of 3H decays to 80 mg in 4 hours. Determine the halflife of 3H. Hint: The mathematical model is the exponential equation NI 2 ~AN, where N
represents the mass of remaining nuclei. The halftime T% of 3H is the amount of time required for 50% of 3H to decay and T; = 19:2

containing 0.21b of salt per gal enters the tank at a rate of 3 gal per minute. Simultaneously,
a drain is opened at the bottom of the tank allowing the salt solution to leave the tank at 3
gal per minute. Assume that the solution in the tank is kept perfectly mixed at all times.
Find the salt content in the tank at any time t. ‘ Hint: Write down a mathematical model by expressing the rate of change of the amount
of salt in the tank both as a derivative and as a difference between rate in and rate out. Find the solution for this mathematical model.
