Question details

5. The process of radioactive decay is described by the equation yry, where r is a positive constant (the decay constant of the radioactive material). Given that Plutonium- 244 has a half-life of 8x10 years, find its decay constant r by first solving the initial value problem: у,--ry, y@)-yo (where yo > 0). Then use the half. life (i.e., use the fact that)thal ) =yo/2) to find r.
