If ratio of molecular masses of two radioactive substances is $\;\large\frac{1}{2}\;$ and ratio of decay constant is $\;\large\frac{5}{3}\;$ . Then ratio of their initial activity per mole will be


1 Answer

Answer : (b) $\;\large\frac{5}{3}$
Explanation :
Activity $\;R=\lambda N$
No .of nuclei (N) per mole are equal for both substances
$R \propto \lambda$
or $\;\large\frac{R_{1}}{R_{2}}=\large\frac{\lambda_{1}}{\lambda_{2}}=\large\frac{5}{3}\;.$
