Nuclear medicine questions

1. Technetium-99m is generated in a hospital from molybdenum-99. The half-life of technetium-99m is 6.01 hours. It decays to technetium-99 by emitting gamma radiation. The technetium-99 then decays to ruthenium-99.(a) Deduce the nuclear equation for the formation of technetium-99m from molybdenum-99.(b) If the mass of technetium-99m generated in the hospital at 0800 in the morning is 10.0 mg determine the mass of technetium-99m...
