The intensity of emission from a radioactive substance is found to decrease ...
This solution is provided in 60 words. It provides an equation related to radioactivity of a substance, and uses this equation to determine distance one should stand from the source.
Physics: Radiation Intensity Based on Distance
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?View Full Posting Details
