. Nitrogen- 13 ( N 7 13 ) is a radionuclide that decays by positron emission ( e 1 0 ) to carbon- 13 ( C 6 13 ) with a half-life very close to 10 minutes. If we begin with a sample containing 1(X) micrograms of nitrogen-13, how much N-13 will remain after a period of two half-lives?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Interpret amount of N-13 remain after two half life of 10 minutes.

Concept Introduction:

Half life is the measurement of time required for the conversion of half of the reactant to product and can be indicated as t1 / 2.

A reactant reacts to produce product in particular duration of time whereas if time to be recorded for the completion of half of the reaction then it gets denoted by t1 / 2.

Explanation

The half life of nitrogen is 10 indicates that in 10 minute half the concentration of nitrogen get changes to carbon. Thus, 100 microgram of nitrogen decays to 50 micr...
