. A _________ counter contains argon gas, which is ionized by radiation, making possible the measurement of radioactive decay rates.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

To fill in the blanks.

A......counter contains argon gas, which is ionized by radiation, making possible the measurement of radioactive decay rates.

Concept Introduction:

A Geiger counter used for calibrating radiation of a nuclide which get ionizes and also required in measuring the rate of decay taking place due to alpha, beta or gamma radiation.

Geiger mueller also required in radiological protection, radiation dosimetry, nuclear industry and experimental physics.

It measure the rate in terms of Bq.

Explanation

A Geiger counter is an apparatus or instrument required for calibrating ionizing radiation. This instrument also known as Geiger- mueller counter which are required in measuring the rate of decay taking place due to alpha, beta or gamma radiation.

It is mostly used in radiological protection, radiation dosimetry, nuclear industry and experimental physics...
