   C. 23,000 years              D. 1,000,000 years                     C. 23,000 years              D. 1,000,000 years

2. If you have 200 grams of radioactive Polonium with a half life   2. If you have 200 grams of radioactive Polonium with a half life
   of 50 years. How much is left after 50 years?                       of 50 years. How much is left after 50 years?

      a. How much is left after 100 years?                                 a. How much is left after 100 years?

      b. How much is left after 150 years?                                 b. How much is left after 150 years?

      c. How many half lives did it take                                   c. How many half lives did it take
         to get to 50 grams?                 _______________                  to get to 50 grams?             _______________
     Amount remaining = initial sample (1/2)n                                Amount remaining = initial sample (1/2)n
     n = half life                                                           n = half life
     # of half lives = elapsed time / half life                              # of half lives = elapsed time / half life
