(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I have conducted an experiment and found thegradient λof a graph to be (2.15x10^-4) +- (0.15x10^-4)

The graph beingln(A) i.e. the number of disintegrations/unit time - dN/dtagainsttime t

The half-life is

T(1/2) = ln(2)/λ = -3223.9

How do I find the uncertainty in the half-life?

Thank you!

2. Relevant equations
