Note: 99Mo sources really are called cows. ° A radionuclide generator regularly “milks” the Tc-99m from the “cow” 99 Mo. ° Each time this occurs, there is another gradual buildup of Tc-99 m and the new transient equilibrium is reached where it is theoretically slightly higher than that of 99Mo. ° Actually it never quite surpasses 99Mo because the production efficiency is about 88 %. • No equilibrium: When daughter half-life is longer than parent half-life. ° All of the parent nuclide decays into daughter, and there is no equilibrium.

01 MeV or so, it is able to interact with the nucleus. ° Heavy charged particles can experience Bremsstrahlung but they have so much mass that this effect is minimal. ° Interactions between a charged particle and the nucleus can result in various nuclear reactions (see Chapt. 2), causing some secondary particles and residual radioactivity.

Pair production POOF! 511 MeV I will kill you! 511 MeV Fig. 5 Pair production: A photon is traveling with so much energy that when it hits the electric field of the electron orbitals, it explodes into an electron and an evil positron out of thin air. The electron wonders off and exerts coulombic forces but the evil positron not only causes ionizations by coulombic forces, but it eventually slows down and finds an electron somewhere else and annihilates it! 511 MeV. 511 MeV (these can go wreak their own havoc).
