1. A hospital patient receives an x-ray dose of 0.5 m rad. What is the dose equivalent in sieverts?

a. 0.5 m Sv
b. .005 m Sv
c. .05 m Sv
d. 5 m Sv

Answer: b. .005 m Sv

rem = rad x Q.
X rays and gamma rays have a Q about 1
Therefore 1 rem = 1 rad as Q=1
100 rem = 1 Sv
Therefore 0.5m rad= 0.5 m rem = 0.5 m /100 Sv= .005 m Sv

2. Determine the identity of the nucleus X in the reaction 13C6 + n -----> X + gamma

a. 13C6
b. 14C6
c. 14N7
d. 14N6

Answer: b. 14C6

n has a charge 0 and mass 1
gamma rays are radiation: no charge and mass
Therefore
X will have a charge = ...

Please show me a stepwise solution for how to reach the final answer.

Why use nuclear power on a satellite? (select all answers that apply)
it can supply energy for many years on long space missions.
solar cells don't work well in the outer solar system far from the sun.
sending radioactive materials into space is a good way to get rid of them so they don't create a hazard on earth.

Please provide some assistance with a few practice nuclear chemistry questions. I have attached two files, one with the questions and the other with a figure which is needed for some of the questions.
