Assignment 3-7 Half-Life Worksheet Complete each problem. Be sure to show all work and place final answer in the box provided 1) Iron-59 is used in medicine to diagnose blood circulation disorders. The half life of iron-59 is 44.5 days. How much of a 2.00 mg sample will remain after 133.5 days? 2) If gallium-68 has a half-life of 68.3 min, how much of a 10.0 mg sample is left after one half life? How much is left after 3 half-lives? 3) If the passing of 5 half-lives leaves 25.0 mg of a strontium-90 sample, how much was present at the beginning? 4) How much of a 1.0 g polonium-214 sample remains after 818 microseconds? (the half life of polonium-214 is 163.7 microseconds) 5) The initial mass of a radioisotope is 10.0g.
