Consider the first-order half-life decay of 6 14 C. Given that the half-life is 5730 yrs,
calculate the rate constant for this process in s 1 (use the conversion 365.24 days = 1 yr).
Given an initial concentration of 0.50M, calculate the initial rate of this process in M/s.
Equations you will need:
t 1 / 2 = ln 2 k
(first-order half-life)
r ( t ) = k [ 6 14 C ]
(first-order rate law)
Answers:
k = 3.83 × 10 12 s 1
r ( t ) = 1.92 × 10 12 M / s
