Half- Life - How much time it takes for half the nuclear material to decay 64g U -238 100 years. How much U -238 will be present in 100 years? Mass (g) Time (years) 64 0 32 100 16 200 8 300 4 400 2 500 1 600 .5 700 .25 800 .125 900 .0625 1000 300mg X half-life= 30 seconds How long will it take until I only have 9.375mg of X left?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
