Homework Statement:
We are asked to calculate the half life of 96-Cm-247 using equations from class, and to compare this calculated value to the real value. When comparing there appears to be a very large discrepancy. I'm wondering if this is to be expected or if there is a calculation error on my part. Ill attach my attempt at a solution

I am unable to read your attachments. I suggest you type in your calculations. Try to use latex.
