Textbook Problem

Which methods of radiation protection were used in the device shown in the first photo in Figure 32.35? Which were used in the situation shown in the second photo?

(a)

(b)

Figure 32.35 (a) This x−ray fluorescence machine is one of the thousands used in shoe stores to produce images offset as a check on the fit of shoes. They are unshielded and remain on as long as the test are in them, producing doses much greater titan medical images. Children were fascinated with them. These machines were used in shoe stores until laws preventing such unwarranted radiation exposure were enacted in the 1950s (credit: Andrew Kuchling ) (b) New that we know the effects of exposure to radioactive material, eatery is a priority. (credit: U.S. Navy)

To determine

The methods used for radiation protection in the device shown in the first photo and in the situation shown in the second photo of Figure 1.

Explanation

Introduction:

Electromagnetic wave causes severe harm on human being. Radiation destroy the tissue and cells of human organ and thus cause death in some cases. To protect from this radiation some protection is used. Radiation protection limits the dose of radiation as it shields the radiation in limited amount to enter in environment.

The given figure is shown below.
