Answer :

We know that,


A= Activity of the substance

A0 = Initial activity

t = time

λ = decay constant


Half-life = 10h, A0=1 Ci

Activity after 9 hours

= 0.536 Ci

Number of atoms left after 9 hours

Activity after 10 hours = 0.5 Ci [As 10h is half-life]

Number of atoms left after 10 hours

Hence, net disintegrations at the 10th hour = (1.03×1015-9.60×1014)

= 6.92×1013 atoms
