Best Answer

Arsenic (in the form of arsenic-75) is a stable element. Only its isotopes have a half-life. As there are many isotopes of every element, and each has a different half life, it is difficult to specify a precise answer.

The related link below contains a list of known isotopes and their half lives.

Half-Life, Half-Life: Blueshift, Half-life: Opposing Force, Half-life: High Definition pack (might not classify as a game), Half-Life: Source, Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2: Episode 1, and Half-Life 2: Episode 2. Eight games total not including countless mods created by fans that you can download for free on and Other games by Valve software include Left 4 Dead, Left 4 Dead 2, Portal, Portal 2, Counter Strike, Counter Strike: Source, Team Fortress, Team Fortress 2, and Alien Swarm.

What type of bond is formed between arsenic and sulfur?

Naturally occurring arsenic is composed of one stable isotope, 75As.[11] As of 2003, at least 33 radioisotopes have also been synthesized, ranging in atomic mass from 60 to 92. The most stable of these is 73As with a half-life of 80.3 days. Isotopes that are lighter than the stable 75As tend to decay by β+ decay, and those that are heavier tend to decay by β- decay, with some exceptions. At least 10 nuclear isomers have been described, ranging in atomic mass from 66 to 84. The most stable of arsenic's isomers is 68mAs with a half-life of 111 seconds
