First Order processes
This page will present questions based upon first order processes, either radioactive decays or chemical reactions. When you press "New Problem", a question will apear to the right of the table. Obtain and submit the required answer. Results appear in the table. Use the "e" notation for presenting very large or small numbers. All masses are in grams, but the time dimension will vary.
Note:This is nearly complete and should perform and present all of the problems, including time conversions. Some of the numbers may still be presented in awkward formats.
- Read the question carefully. Sometimes you are asked about % or about the amount which has been consumed. In such cases, recall that the amount reacted,r=o-t
- Be very careful about the time dimension as it changes occasionally.
- Percentage problems can be simplified by assuming a initial sample size of 100. The percentage given then becomes either r or t, depending on the problem.
- If you miss a problem three times, pressing "Show Answer" will cause a complete solution to appear.
- The solution is presented in what is viewed as the most error proof approach. It is certainly not the only method.
