Unformatted text preview: half-life of 1.83 hours. Assuming that the F-18 can be transported at 60.0 miles per hour, how close must the hospital be to the cyclotron if 65% of the F-18 is to make it to the hospital? 7. Calculate the mass defect and nuclear binding energy per nucleon (in MeV) for C-16, a radioactive isotope of carbon with a mass of 16.014701. (mass of 1 1 H = 1.00783 amu, mass of 1 n = 1.00866 amu, and 1 amu = 931.5 MeV.) 8. (#22 Zumdahl) Americium-241 is widely used in smoke detectors. The radiation released by this element ionizes particles that are then detected by a charged-particle collector. The half-life of 241 Am is 432.2 years, and it decays by emitting alpha particles. How many alpha particles are emitted each second by a 5.00 g sample of 241 Am?...
