Question: Radioactive copper 64 decays with a half life of 12 8 days a What

Radioactive copper-64 decays with a half-life of 12.8 days.
a. What is the value of k in s-1?
b. A sample contains 28.0 mg 64Cu. How many decay events will be produced in the first second? Assume that the atomic mass of 64Cu is 64.0.
c. A chemist obtains a fresh sample of 64Cu and measures its radioactivity. She then determines that to do an experiment, the radioactivity cannot fall below 25% of rhe initial measured value. How long does she have to perform the experiment?
