What is technology

Science applied to practical problems (Apex)

An isotope of cesium-137 has a half-life of 30 if 1.0 g of cesium-137 disintegrates over a period of 90 years how many g of cesium-137 would remain

1/8th of a gram.

You compute it like this: After 30 years, half of the original amount would remain (1/2-gram). After another 30 years, half of that half would remain (1/4-gram). After the remaining 30 years, half of the 1/4-gram would remain, or 1/8-gram.
