    Radioactive Decay Lab [P]

    Does anyone know how the equation is supposed to look for the radioactive decay lab?
    So far, I've gotten to ln(C/150)=-0.024T. I don't know if there is anything else to simplify here, and if there isn't, which number is the half life, or at least, how am I supposed to know which one?
    Thanks...

    Well... uh, we turned it in today, so I don't think this'll be a ton of help now...

    But for what it's worth, my equation was y=150e^(-.024x) .
    I think you had to simplify it down to a y equals formula, maybe...
