A beam of 168 -MeV nitrogen nuclei is used for cancer therapy. If this beam is directed onto a $0.200-\mathrm{kg}$ tumor and gives it a 2.00 -Sv dose, how many nitrogen nuclei were stopped? (Use an RBE of 20 for heavy ions.)

now lesson book had the problem fixed king in techno city to this problem, it asked us to calculate the number off natural Jen yokel used before this cancer therapy. It is said that the true murder is pulling a tool kilograms and that those the receives its to Syria. We need to take a late comeback. This those two Great, Because we need to calculate city record. Deputation. Oh, nitrogen! Locally, So to see words, this RV is 20 e coast, too over 20. Great. That echoes pulling the one angry. And then we know that the gray is if defend at the drawers per kilogram. So there's also Eco's Poona, one euros per kilogram. So totally help on a two kilogram oh tumor. So the total those devastated under his tumor is pouring the tool kilogram times point weren't draws per kilogram, and the latter Eco's 0.0.2 draws. That means the total deprivation off natural. Daniel Cullen tears to my eyes 0.2 growth, and we know that the energy of this new knew nitrogen nuclear is 168 mega electoral walls, and we needed to calculate the number that is easy. 0.2 point 02 draws, derided by 168 medal actuals that will give us the number over, and I should a nuclear point. Oh, to draw Zico's time. 6.24 times, 10 to the 12th merga electoral Waas. They will get it by 168 neg electoral walls. That gives us a number that equals so important before three times 10 to the it is.
