(i) On the grid provided, plot a graph of the
percentage of Bismuth remaining (vertical axis) against time. (Graph was provided)
(ii) Using the graph, determine the:
I.Half-life of the Bismuth isotope. II.Original mass of the Bismuth isotope given that the mass that remained after 70 minutes was 0.16g.
