Solution to Question # 3; Lecture 5 How long will a 60 Co source be useful if it can be used until the γ- rays it produces reach 70 percent of the original intensity? 60 27 Co decays with a half–life of 5.30 years to produce 60 28 Ni. ln (N/N o ) = - k t Convert given half-life (5.30 years) to rate constant k by using this equation: k = ln 2 / t 1/2 = ln 2 / 5.30 y = 0.131 /y Use the integrated rate equation to obtain time t since you know k and N/N 0 ( = 70/100; from question): ln (N/N o ) = - k t => t = - [ln (N/N 0 )] / k = - [ln (70/100)] / 0.131/y = 2.72 y t

Buddy Question # 4 What percent of the original 14 C remains in the heartwood of a bristle cone pine that is 3000 y old? 14 6 C 14 7 N + 0 -1 β t 1/2 = 5730 y ln (N / N o ) = - k t ln x = y x = e y ln 2 = k t 1/2 => k = ln 2 / t 1/2 N / N o = e - k t = e (-3000 y ln 2)/5730 y = e -0.363 = 0.695 69.5 %
