Chapter 22 REVIEW

  1. Radiation is an unstable nucleus that spits out particles from the _NUCLEUS______.
  2. What cause the nucleus to be unstable? ______.
  3. a) Do different atoms of the same element have different half-life (t ½ )? NO
    Different atoms of the same element have the SAME half-life.
    b) Do different isotopes have different half-lifes (t ½ )? YES
    Different isotopes have a different neutron number which results in different half-life

    2.6 min
  3. Cobalt-60 has a half-life of 5.26 years. The Co-60 in a radiotherapy unit must be replaced when its radioactivity falls to 75% decay. If the original sample was purchased in August 2007, when will it be necessary to replace the Co-60?
