    The purpose of this paper is to try to put nuclear methods in perspective and to give a hint of the wide possibilities for these methods. First, it should be realized that nuclear applications in most fields are analytical in nature, since by utilizing the nuclear properties of radioactive isotopes it is possible to trace or detect components of systems that otherwise could not be observed. Furthermore, any tracer experiment, whether it is performed in physics, engineering, biology, or chemistry, has as its foundation a fundamental chemical assumption which states that the tracer and the material that is being traced must be in the same chemical state.
