Please HELP! Could You Glow in the Dark?

  1. Mar 30, 2006 #1
    If all of the energy from the decay of 14C in your body could be captured and converted into electricity, how many "radioactive" people would be required to power a 100 W light bulb?

    You can start by writing an equation for the decay of [itex]C^{14}[/itex].
