Abstract  

Accuracy and precision of instrumental neutron activation analysis, based on short-lived radionuclides, are considered. Equations are derived for both quantitives as a function of concentration and features of the γ-ray spectrum. The determination of vanadium by way of52V(T=3.75 min) is used as an example.
