Answer :

Given, 57Co decays by β+ and γ- emission. Rate of emission of gamma rays is 5.0 × 109.

As the emission rate reduce to half of the given value. So the amount of 57Co by β+-emission should reduce to half of the original amount.


Time elapsed for drop of emission rate to half is half life of the β+-emission.
