9. An alterative to shielding of the radiation source is to extend the distance between the radiation source and the worker. The initial design places the worker 1m, from the source. If the design was revised so the worker was 10m from the source, what percentage reduction in radiation exposure would there be for the second position relative to the first?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 24, 2021, 8:26 pm ad1c9bdddf
The radiation intensity decreases with distanse: so called inverse square ...
This solution shows how to determine the differential quantities of radiation that an individual would be exposed to depending on the distance from the source of the radiation.
