    NOw this Question is VERY interesting for all you Gamers out there
    please read the Question1 twice



    Question 1

    Explain what is meant by the term half-life.(2 marks)

    The Answer

    Nivi's answer: 'It means it has lived half of its life, that's why the graph goes down.'

    Examiner's Note

    Nivi has the right idea - but no marks. The half-life is the time takenfor half the atoms to decay. This question is quite common in exams so try to learn the answer by heart.

    Now try another question:

    Question 2

    Calculate the half-life of this isotope from the graph.(2 marks)

    The Answer

    Nivi's answer: It takes 6 days to go half way through its life.

    Examiner's Note

    The right answer. However, it is always better to give as much detail in your answer as possible. This student could have shown their working. For example:


    The start reading is 80 counts
    Half this reading is 40 counts
    It takes 6 days to reach 40 counts.
    Question 3

    To practise reading graphs further, have a look at the graph again and use it to work out:

    1. How long the count takes to drop from 40 to 20.
    2. How long the count takes to drop from 60 to 30.
    The Answer

    You should have an answer of 6 days each time.

    I don't know why gamers would find a radioactive isotope's half life interesting.

    Altho' I find it infinitely more interesting than gaming
