consider the transition metal gallium. The gallium-67 isotope (67Ga) is a radioactive element often used in hospitals to image inflammation and chronic infections via a technique called a gallium scan. 67Ga has a half-life equal to 3.3 days and decays to 67Zn via a process called electron capture, which follows first order kinetics.
How long will it take for the amount of 67Ga in your sample to drop to 6.25%?
a. 3.3 days b. 9.9 days c. 13.2 days d. 16.5 days e. 19.8 days

Gallium 67 (67Ga) is a radioactive isotope with a half-life of 3.26 days. It's used in nuclear medicine to locate inflammations and tumors. Accumulations of 67 Ga in a patient's tissue can be detected by looking for the gamma rays it emits when it decays. 3 days after 67Ga was administered to the patient, what fraction of the 67Ga nuclei remains?
