🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Gerner's class at UARK.

Solution: Naturally occurring cobalt consists of only one isotope,  59Co, whose relative atomic mass is 58.9332. A synthetic radioactive isotope of cobalt, 60Co, relative atomic mass 59.9338, is used in radiation therapy for cancer. A 1.5886-g sample of cobalt has an apparent "atomic mass" of 58.9901. Find the mass of 60Co in this sample.
