Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Interpret number of half lives passing 1% of radioisotope.

Concept Introduction:

A reactant reacts to produce product in particular duration of time whereas if time to be recorded for the completion of half of the reaction then it gets denoted by t1 / 2. t1 / 2 is known as half life of the reaction in which half of the reaction proceeds to give product.

Explanation

Half life is the measurement of time required for the conversion of half of the reactant to product and can be indicated as t1 / 2.

For half life of 1% radioisotope it can be shown as t1
