EPA On-line Tools for Site Assessment Calculation
Half lives and rate constants are related through the formula t1/2 = 0.6931/λ, where t1/2 is the half life and λ is the first order rate constant. The calculator below does this calculation using various time units.

Note: The rate constant is positive because the transport equation has the term - λ c The minus sign denotes loss of the contaminant to degradation.
