The answer is already on page 2 of your link above: "Among the large number of radionuclides of medical interest, Sc-44 is promising for PET imaging. Either the ground-state Sc-44g or the metastable-state Sc-44m can be used for such applications, depending on the moleculeused as vector." So the metastable state Sc-44m decays to the ground state Sc-44g.

I will simplify this problem by assuming that the only forces come from Newtonian gravity and by limiting the masses of the moons to much smaller values than that of the planets, such that the moons exert a much smaller gravitational forces on all other bodies and therefore can be neglected; so the only sources of gravitational forces are the two planets. ...

How “large” is a Lagrange point? L1, L2 and L3 are essentially zero size cause they're never stable. They're still useful cause an orbital near L1, L2 or L3 doesn't require a lot of energy to stay in that general area. so we can use L1, 2 or 3 for not quite stable orbits that don't require much energy adjustment. L1 Halo orbits are used too, not ...

There is no such thing as classical motion of an electron in an atom. The quantum states electrons in an atom are in are atomic orbitals, which possess a definite energy, but not a definite position. The Bohr model of the electron, in which electrons are thought of as classical particles orbiting the nucleus, is false. The question whether or not two ...

Why don't electrons collide among themselves Because they aren't anything like billiard balls. Check out the wave nature of matter. And take a look at the Wikipedia atomic orbitals article: "The electrons do not orbit the nucleus in the sense of a planet orbiting the sun, but instead exist as standing waves". The Heisenberg principle states that we ...

The Coulomb Potential is a solution to Laplace's equation in 3 dimensions. In 2 dimensions the equivalent solution is a logarithmic potential. You have written down the Coulomb potential for 4 charges but then treat the problem as 2 dimensional, which is causing your problems. To resolve this you need to add a load of $z^2$s to your potential. If you ...
