Expert Answer

Step 1

Since the decay of thallium-201 follows first order reaction. Thus, it must follow the kinetics equation for first order.

First order integral equation:

Step 2

Given information:

Initial concentration of thallium-201, [A]o = 0.50 M

Final concentration of thallium-201, [A]t = 0.15 M

Time taken = let it ‘t’ hr.

Rate constant = 9.5 × 10-3 hr-.

Step 3

Plugging all value in above equat...
