1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The polonium isotope 210Po, an alpha emitter, has a half-life of 138.38 days. You happen to have a 1.5 g cube of 210Po, so you decide to use it to boil water for tea. You fill a well-insulated container with 120 mL of water at 18° C and drop in the cube of polonium. (a) How long will it take to bring the water to a boil? (b) Explain whether or not the water have been altered in any way by this method of boiling. 2. Relevant equations N=N0e-λt E=mc2 E=mΔTC where c is heat capacity of water 4.18 j/gC° 3. The attempt at a solution So far I have found the energy fro the water to change from temperature which is 41131.2 joules. Then I feel i would have to find the amount of time it takes polonium to reach that amount of energy but i dont know how i would do that.
