Worksheet: Uses of Radioisotopes
In this worksheet, we will practice describing the applications of radioisotopes and explaining the importance of decay rate and penetrating power.
The dissolution or precipitation of silver(I) chloride in water is an equilibrium process, as shown. How could radioactive nuclides be used to show that this reaction is a dynamic equilibrium?
- AA nonradioactive sample of becomes more soluble when exposed to aqueous unstable or ions.
- BA radioactive sample of becomes less radioactive when stored in water.
- CA nonradioactive sample of becomes more radioactive when exposed to aqueous unstable or ions.
- DThe apparent half-life of a radioactive sample of increases when it is exposed to aqueous unstable or ions.
- EAqueous unstable and ions precipitate from a hot aqueous solution to form nonradioactive .
