Problem

Radon (Rn) is the heaviest, and only radioactive, member of Group 8A(18) (noble gases). It is a product of the disintegration of heavier radioactive nuclei found in minute concentrations in many common rocks used for building and construction. In recent years, there has been growing concern about the cancers caused from inhaled residential radon. If 1.0x1015 atoms of radium (Ra) produce an average of 1.373x104 atoms of Rn per second, how many liters of Rn, measured at STP, are produced per day by 1.0 g of Ra?
