A patient is injected with ⁹⁹ᵐTc that has an initial activity of 250 MBq. Given that each gamma ray photon has energy 2.2x10⁻¹⁴J, calculate the initial rate of energy emission.
1.1x10⁻⁵ (J s⁻¹)
5.5x10⁻⁶ (J s⁻¹)
1.1x10⁻⁶ (J s⁻¹)
A different patient is injected with ⁹⁹ᵐTc at 11am. If the activity of the sample was 37 MBq at 9am and the half-life of ⁹⁹ᵐTc is 6 hours, what will the activity of the sample be when it is injected to the patient?
