Below are the theoretical calculations for the theoretical decay frequencies

Na-22, 10.19 uCi on July 15, 2013, half life 2.602 +/- 0.002 years, 99.937% for 1274.52 keV line and 178.8 for 511 keV line , activity in Feb 4, 2017 = 3.947 uCi

= for the 1274 keV line
= for the 511 keV line

Now compute the expected rate for February 5, 2017.

The activity on Feb 5, 2017 is 3.944 uCi, so the expected rates for the 2 lines are

= for the 1274 keV line
= for the 511 keV line

Now compute the expected rate for February 9, 2017

The activity on Feb 9, 2017 is 3.933 uCi, so the expected rate for the 2 lines are

= for the 1274 keV line
= for the 511 keV line

Now compute the expected rate for Feb 12, 2017

The activity on Feb 12, 2017 is 3.924 uCi, so the expected rate for the 2 lines are

= for the 1274 keV line
= for the 511 keV line
