Can we use the half life formulas for zero order and second order in practical life examples?

Yes, just plug your given values into the equations and solve!

Yes you can. You can use the half life formulas and also plug in your values for time and concentration into the zero order and second order equations as well.

Yes, first order half lives apply to radioactive decay. Zero order and Second order half lives exist in real life with other processes

Also, be sure to use the appropriate half life equation based on the order!

Yes, just be sure to include use the proper equation for the corresponding order.
