Textbook Problem

A plumber at a nuclear power plant receives a whole—body dose of 30 mSv in 15 minutes while repairing a crucial valve. Find the radiation—induced yearly risk of death from cancer and the chance of genetic defect from this maximum allowable exposure.

To determine

The radiation-induced yearly risk of death from cancer and the chance of genetic defect from this maximum allowable exposure

Explanation

Given info:

A plumber at a nuclear power plant receives a whole-body dose of 30 mSv in 15 minutes while repairing a crucial valve.

Calculation:

We know, 1Sv = 100 rem

Substituting the given values, we get

  (30mrem)(1Sv1000mSv)(100rem1Sv)=3rem

Therefore,

  (3rem)(<
