Sal continues his discussion of decay by showing students the math involved in determining how much a substance is left after one half-life, two half-lives, and even three half-lives have gone by. He sets up a general function of time that can be used to determine the remaining amount of a substance after 10 minutes, or three billion years have elapsed!
