Gold191 has a halflife of 12.4 hours. What mass of this isotope would remain after 49.6 hours if you started with a 7.50 mg?

The halflife of cesium137 is 30.2 years. If the initial mass of a sample of cesium137 is 1.00 kg, how much will remain after 151 years?

Given that the halflife of carbon14 is 5730 years, consider a sample of fossilized wood that, when alive, would have contained 24 g of carbon14. It now contains 1.5 g of carbon14. How old is the sample?

What is the halflife of an isotope of plutonium, if the original sample was 10 g and after 420 days there were 1.3 grams left?
