11 Numerical Response
05. As xenon ions in the exhaust stream behind the DS1 capsule interact with other
charged particles in space, the xenon ions become neutral atoms, and in the process,
emit photons. The maximum frequency of these photons, expressed in scientific
notation, is b × 10w Hz. The value of b is __________.
(Record your three-digit answer in the numerical-response section on the answer sheet.) Use the following additional information to answer the next two questions.
One isotope of xenon, xenon-133, is an unstable isotope that undergoes beta
decay and has a half-life of 5.24 days. Numerical Response
06. If the IPS uses 81.5 kg of xenon-133 as a propellant and the launch is delayed by
26.2 days, the amount of xenon-133 that would remain is __________ kg.
