Solve: (a) (b) The mass of radium is the number of nuclei times the mass of each one. (c) There are Reflect: The activity is directly proportional to the mass of the radioactive nuclei in the sample. The mass in part (c) is about ten times that in part (b), and the activity is about a factor of ten times larger. 30.20. Set Up: The activity of carbon in the atmosphere is 0.255 Bq per gram of carbon. The half-life of is 5730 yr. Solve: The activity of a present-day sample with 55.0 g of carbon is and so the age of the sample is 30.21. Set Up: One-half of the sample decays in a time of Solve: (a) (b) This exponent is too large for most hand-held calculators. But so 30.22. Set Up: The mass of a single nucleus is Solve: (a) (b) (c) 30.23. Set Up: and is the SI unit of absorbed dose. Sv is the SI unit for equivalent dose. Rem is the equivalent dose when the absorbed dose is in rad. For x rays, For protons, Solve: (a) 5.0 Gy, 500 rad. so equivalent dose. 5.0 Sv and 500 rem. (b) (c) The absorbed dose and total absorbed energy are the same but the equivalent dose is 10 times larger. So the

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
