An initial amount of the material has a mass of 801 kg. Write an exponential function that models the decay of this material remains after 10 days.Answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(15623)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The half-life of a certain radioatcive material is 85 days. An initial amount of the material has a mass of 801 kg. Write an exponential function that models the decay of this material remains after 10 days. : The half life formula: A = Ao*2^(-t/h) where Ao = initial amt (801) A = resulting amt after t time elapses t = time (10) h = half-life of substance (85) : A = 801 * 2^(-10/85)
