Problem 21.5

All the stable isotopes of boron, carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and fluorine are shown in the chart in the right hand column (in red), along with their radioactive isotopes with t1>2 71 min (in blue). (a) Write the chemical symbols, including mass and atomic numbers, for all of the stable isotopes. (b) Which radioactive isotopes are most likely to decay by beta emission? (c) Some of the isotopes shown are used in positron emission tomography. Which ones would you expect to be most useful for this application? (d) Which isotope would decay to 12.5% of its original concentration after 1 hour? [Sections 21.2,21.4, and 21.5]

Step 1 of 3

Ch 1 Matter and Measurement  Chemistry is the study of the properties and behavior of matter.  Matter – anything that occupies space and has mass. Classification of Matter States of Matter Shape Volume Gas indefinite indefinite Liquid indefinite definite Solid definite definite  The basic difference between these states is the distance between the “bodies.”  Gas – bodies are far apart and in rapid motion.  Liquid – bodies closer together, but still able to move past each other.  Solid – bodies are closer still and are now held in place in a definite arrangement. Pure
