4. Determine the atomic number, mass number and neutron number for oxygen isotopes and the fluorine isotope listed in the table on page 21-8. Compare the binding energies for 16O and 19F.
5. What isotope is formed by the alpha decay of 210Po and 239Pu. Use a periodic table.
6. 7Be decays by electron capture. What is the daughter nucleus? Determine if 7Be could also decay by b+ decay.
7. 24Na decays by b- emission. What is the estimated maximum kinetic energy of the beta particle? How fast would it be travelling?
