Problem 20.22

The curie (Ci) is a commonly used unit for measuring nuclear radioactivity: 1 curie of radiation is equal to 3.7 3 1010 decay events per second (the number of decay events from 1 g of radium in 1 s). a. What mass of Na2 38SO4 has an activity of 10.0 mCi? Sulfur-38 has an atomic mass of 38.0 u and a halflife of 2.87 h. b. How long does it take for 99.99% of a sample of sulfur-38 to decay?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

CHEM 372 Week 2 Notes  Week 2: Day 1  ∆G < 0 exergonic, so ∆G > 0 Endergonic  Catabolism – breaking down molecules and releasing energy  Pathways o How to make sure you get one pathway and not the other pathway if you have both Cat./Ana.  Regulation is the trick to get the reaction where you want it to go o Regulation – activation/inhibiting enzymes to introduce/remove a barrier to a pathway  Glycolysis (downward)  Makes one reaction faster than another  Allosteric Inhibitors  Separate pathways – share begin/end points o Activate first step of desired reaction o Inhibit first step of reverse reaction o Ex: Fatty acid metabolism o Ex: common
