1. The isotope GA-67 is used medically to scan for various tumors.
a.) Write the nuclear symbol for Ga-67
b.) How many protons are there in the nucleus?
c.) How many neutrons are there?
d.) Calculate ΔE in kJ when 1.00 of Ga-71 (nuclear mass of 70.9476 amu) is bombarded by an α-particle producing As-72 (nuclear mass = 71.9493 amu) and neutrons
e.) What is the mass defect of Ga-71?
f.) What is the binding energy of Ga-71?
Please see the attached file.
1b) Number of protons in Ga 67 are 31
Number of protons + neutrons = 67
Number of protons ...
This solution answers several questions about characteristics of the isotope GA-67 in its use to scan for tumours
