The rate of decay of a radioactive substance depends upon the amount present initially. the mass y (mg) of the radioactive substance cobalt-60 present in a sample at time t (years) is represented by the exponential equation y=50e −0.1315 t . answer the following questions in complete sentences. 1. how does the exponential equation above compare to the equation for simple interest that is compounded continuously? explain the similarities. 2. what is the initial amount of cobalt-60 in the sample? 2. how much cobalt-60 is left after 8.4 years? show your work. 3. what would be the y-intercept of the graph? what does it represent? 4. after how many years will the amount of cobalt-60 left be 6.25 mg? explain what happens to the cobalt-60 after 50 years? 5. discuss some “real-world” examples and uses of cobalt-60
the equation cos(35) =a/25 can be used to find the length of bc what is the length of bc? round to the nearest tenth
you could deduce the conclusion directly using the facts pertaining to the specific situation.
hope this .
your answer is c. 97 (don't delete this again)
