Ga-67 > P-32 > Cr-51 > Sr-89

Work Step by Step

Given P-32 half life is 14.3 days Cr-51 half life is 27.7 days Ga-67 half life is 78.3 hours Sr-89 half life is 50.5 days. The nuclides having short half lives are most active. So the order of most active to least active is: Ga-67 > P-32 > Cr-51 > Sr-89
