. A list of several important radionuclides is given in Table 19.4. Which is the “hottest”? Which is the most stable to decay?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Interpret the hottest and most stableelement.

Concept Introduction:

The isotope with less half-life will decay with higher rate and is more active for decay in comparison to isotope with more half-life will decay with lower rate and takes more time.

For example: Na24 is metallic in nature and loses electron readily to become more active for decay. Moreover, as it has lower half-life of 15 hr while C14 is quite stable to lose or gain electron and thus is least active for decay as it has higher half-life of 5730 yr.

Explanation

2 0 Ca is more active for decay as it has lower half-life of 21 hr while C14 is quite stable to lose or gain electron and it has higher half-life of 5730 yr...
