An initial amount of a radioactive substance y0?is given, along with information about the amount remaining after a given time t in appropriate units. For an equation of the form y = y0ekt?that models the situation, give the exact value of k in terms of natural logarithms: y0?= 2.56 lb; After 2 yr, 0.64 lb remains.
y o=2.56 l b
The general decay equation is:
y= y o e
Since the quantity of substance decreases with time, the equation should be rewritten as:
y= y o e?kt
