Question
A radioactivity sample contains 2.2 mg of pure which has halflife period of 1224 seconds. Calculate the number of atoms present initially.

None of these



easy
Solution
1 gramatom of has a mass of 11 gram, and contains atoms (the Avogadro’s number). Therefore, the number of atoms present (initially) in 2.2 mg
.
