Physics 30

posted by on .

A radioactive isotope(h=4.5days) was prepared. This isotope was used 14 days later when it had an activity of 6000000 Bq. What was the activity of this isotope when initially prepared?

  • Physics 30 - ,

    (Initial activity)*(0.5)^(14/4.5) = 6*10^7 Bq

    Inital activity = 6*10^7*2^3.111
    = 5.2*10^8 Bq

    The answer on my handout is 5.18 x 10^7

    I read your 6000000 incorrectly as 6*10^7. Using commas or scientific notation would have helped me read the string of zeros.

    The handout answer is correct.
