# Determining the Alpha Radiation Dose

Not what you're looking for?

A particular task exposes the operator to alpha radiation at an average dose of 250 uGy (micro-Gy) each time the task is performed. If the company needs the task performed once per day over a 260-day working year and the maximum occupational dose limit is 20 mSv per year, how many staff does the company need to assign to the task?

##### Solution Summary

Through this solution students will learn how to calculate the upper limit of a radiation dose affecting workers in a company/factory and they will be able to employ this step-by-step method for similar radiation dose related problems in the future. The explanation is given in 178 words with three words.
