Problem 43.22

Radiation Treatment of Prostate Cancer. In many cases, prostate cancer is treated by implanting 60 to 100 small seeds of radioactive material into the tumor. The energy released from the decays kills the tumor. One isotope that is used (there are others) is palladium 1103Pd2), with a half-life of 17 days. If a typical grain contains 0.250 g of 103Pd, (a) what is its initial activity rate in Bq, and (b) what is the rate 68 days later?
