A first order reaction takes 23.1 minutes for 50% completion. Calculate the time required for 75% completion of this reaction.
(log 2 = 0.301, log 3 = 0.4771, log 4 = 0.6021)
Sucrose decomposes in acid solution to give glucose and fructose according to the first order rate law. The half life of the reaction is 3 hours. Calculate fraction of sucrose which will remain after 8 hours.
For a first order reaction, show that time required for 99% completion is twice the time required for the completion of 90% of reaction.
During nuclear explosion, one of the products is 90Sr with half-life of 28.1 years. If 1μg of 90Sr was absorbed in the bones of a newly born baby instead of calcium, how much of it will remain after 10 years and 60 years if it is not lost metabolically.
The half-life for radioactive decay of 14C is 5730 years. An archaeological artifact containing wood had only 80% of the 14C found in a living tree. Estimate the age of the sample.
A first order reaction takes 10 minutes for 25% decomposition. Calculate t1/2 for the reaction.
(Given : log 2 = 0.3010, log 3 = 0.4771, log 4 = 0.6021)
Show that the time required for 99% completion is double of the time required for the completion of 90% reaction.
