Textbook Problem

Isotopes that emit (radiation are relatively safe outside the body and exceptionally hazardous inside. Yet those that emit (radiation are hazardous outside and inside. Explain why.

To determine

The reason due to which the isotopes that emit alpha radiation are safe outside and dangerous inside while the isotopes that emit? radiation are hazardous both outside and inside.

Explanation

Introduction:

Radiation which is occur due to the isotope of the specific element which is having radio active nature. This radiation spread with equal intensity in all direction so that the intensity at particular point is same as the intensity at the beginning point.

In Radiation theory half three types of radiation occur alpha, beta and gamma radiation. Radiation through the alpha particle of an element is alpha radiation. Alpha radiation get absorbed very fast . Alpha radiation have low penetration and high ionizing property...
