# Q. Using a nuclear counter the count rate of emitted particles from a radioactive source is measured. At t = 0 it was 1600 counts per second and t = 8 seconds it was 100 counts per second. The count rate observed, as counts per second, at t = 6 seconds is close to :

JEE Main JEE Main 2019

Solution:

## at t = 0, $A_0 = \frac{dN}{dt} = 1600 C/s$ at t = 8s, A = 100 C/s $\frac{A}{A_0} = \frac{1}{16}$ in 8 sec Therefor half life is $t_{1/2} = 2 \; \sec$ $\therefore$ Activity at t = 6 will be $1600 ( \frac{1}{2} )^3$ = 200 C/s $\therefore$ correct answer is (3)
