Work Step by Step
The rate of decay per gram of radioactive sample is its specific activity. Specific activity can be calculated by knowing the number of particles emitted per second and from the mass of sample. 1 Ci is 3.70x10^10 dps alpha particles emitted per second = 1.56x10^6 dps Specific activity:((1.66x10^6dps/1.55mg))x(1/10^-3g)(1 Ci/ 3.7x10^10dps) = 2.8 x 10^-2 Ci/g
