Problem 77P

Problem 77P

Each of the tabulated nuclides is used in nuclear medicine. List them in order of most active (largest number of decay events per second) to least active (smallest number of decay events per second).

 Nuclide Half-Life P-32 14.3 days Cr-51 27.7 days Ga-67 78.3 hours Sr-89 50.0 days

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution:

Here we have to list all the nuclide in order of most active (largest number of decay events per second) to least active (smallest number of decay events per second).

 Nuclide Half-Life P-32 14.3 days Cr-51 27.7 days Ga-67 78.3 hours Sr-89 50.0 days

For that we have to calculate the decay constant () = 0.693/T1/2

for P-32 = =0.0484

for Cr-51 = =0.025

for Ga-67 = =0.0088

for Sr-89 = =0.0138

Thus the nuclide in order of most active (largest number of decay events per second) to least active (smallest number of decay events per second) is given below,

 Nuclide Half-Life P-32 14.3 days (most active) Cr-51 27.7 days Sr-89 50.0 days Ga-67 78.3 hours (least active)
