Half-Life is the time it takes for one-half of the atoms of a radioactive material to disintegrate. The "half" is an arbitrary amount that represents the amount disintegrated; it can be a "quarter-life" or a "fifth-life". It is useful in dating artifacts, treating patients, and calculating waste storage time.
