Problem 21.5

The steps below show three of the steps in the radioactive decay chain for 232 90Th. The half-life of each isotope is shown below the symbol of the isotope. (a) Identify the type of radioactive decay for each of the steps (i), (ii), and (iii). (b) Which of the isotopes shown has the highest activity? (c) Which of the isotopes shown has the lowest activity? (d) The next step in the decay chain is an alpha emission. What is the next isotope in the chain?

Step 1 of 3

­ Neuromuscular Junction: parts/functions 1. Synapse: gap between 2 motor neurons 2. ACh: main neurotransmitter  ACh­ase: breaks down ACh 3. Myelin: thickness/thinness affects speed transmission (Action potential) 4. Dendrites: receive transmission 5. Axon: transmits 6. Axon Terminals:end of signal sends to another neuron A. Simple Steps of Muscular Contraction: {***possible essay question***} 1. Action Potential (AP) starts in Brain [motor cortex] 2. AP arrives at axon terminal, release of ACh 3. ACh crosses synapse, binds to receptors on plasmalemma 4. AP travels down plasmalemma, through Transverse Tubules (T­Tubules) 5. Triggers Ca2+ (calcium) release from Sacoplasmic Recticulum (SR) 6. Ca2+ enabl
