Bhaskar,
I apologize for the rather arrogant statement I made at the end of my
previous message.  I wrote the note quickly, without thinking of how it
might sound.  Of course, to complete the calculation, you should use
Avogadro's number to convert atoms to moles, and then assume 3 g of tritium
per mole.
Good luck.
Tim
