EXAMPLE 3 The half-life of 20 F is 11.0 s. If a sample initially contains 5.00 g of 20 F, how much 20 F remains after 44.0 s? Solution If we compare the time that has passed to the isotope’s half-life, we note that 44.0 s is exactly 4 half-lives, so using the previous equation, n = 4. Substituting and solving results in the following: Less than one-third of a gram of 20 F remains. SKILL-BUILDING EXERCISE 1.The half-life of44Ti is 60.0 y. A sample initially contains 0.600 g of44Ti. Howmuch44Ti remains after 180.0 y?

    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.
