A nuclear power plant supplying electrical power to a village uses a radioactive material of half life T years as the fuel.

The amount of fuel at the beginning is such that the total power requirement of the village is 12.5 % of the electrical power available from the plant at that time. If the plant is able to meet the total power needs of the village for a maximum period of nT years, then the value of n is

A freshly prepared sample of a radioisotope of half-life 1386 s has activity 103 disintegrations per second. Given that ln2 = 0.693, the fraction of the initial number of nuclei (expressed in nearest integer percentage) that will decay in the first 80 s after preparation of the sample is __________.

To determine the half-life of a radioactive element, a student plots a graph of $$\ln \left| {{{dN(t)} \over {dt}}} \right|$$ versus t. Here, $${{dN(t)} \over {dt}}$$ is the rate of radioactive decay at time t. If the number of radioactive nuclei of this element decreases by a factor of p after 4.16 years, the value of p is __________.
