Textbook Problem

The RBE for low−energy βs is 1.7, whereas that for higher-energy βs is only 1. Explain why, considering how the range of radiation depends on its energy.

To determine

The reasondue to which the range of radiation depends on its energy.

Explanation

Introduction:

For the procedures of ionization radiation some energy is to be needed which can be determined by the amount of radiations on the ions pair. The relative biological effectiveness or RBE can be defined as the ratio of the dose of reference radiation, also named as the roentgen equivalent man or REM, to a dose of test radiation in biological tissue which sometimes referred as RAD. Biological effectiveness of two ionization radiations and the effect of the radiation is directly proportional to the RBE.

Range of radiation is decided by the factor, that when the energy be almost zero. As radiation contains ionized ions which are having high energy, it may pass through different levels...
