Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

N = N0(1/2)^(t/12)
Ln(N/N0) = - (t/12)ln(2)
Ln(N/N0) ≈ - 0.0578t
N ≈ N0e^- 0.0578t
dN/dt ≈ - 0.0578N0e^- 0.0578t
dN/dt ≈ (0.0578)(10^-6 kg)(6.02*10^23/mol)(1 mol/0.143922953 kg)
dN/dt ≈ 2.5*10^17 Bq

ANSWER:

4) 2.5 x 10^17 Bq

** P/S: Please remember to rate my answer later on once the answer is correct. I would be highly appreciate it. Thank you**
