Homework Help: Internal conversion coefficient

  1. May 1, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Refer to the decay scheme of 137Cs
    What is the value of the internal‐conversion coefficient

    2. Relevant equations
    α = Ne/Nγ
    Ne=number of conversion electrons
    Nr=number of competing gamma
    photons for that transition

    3. The attempt at a solution
    α = Ne/Nγ

    The correct answer is 0.118. I am unable to figure out the problem.
