# What is the dose in mSv for: (a) a 0.1 Gy x−ray? (b) 2.5 mGy of neutron exposure to the eye? (c) 1.5 mGy of α exposure?

To determine

(a)

The dose in mSv for a 0.1 Gy X-ray

Explanation

Given:

The energy radiation for X-ray =1 RBE

Gy=0.1 Gy

Formula used:

The does in Sv is

â€ƒâ€ƒSv=RBEÃ—Gy

Calculation:

Substituting the value

â€ƒâ€ƒdoseâ€‰=1â€‰RBEÃ—0.1Gydoesâ€‰=0

(b)

To determine

The dose in mSv foe a 2.5 mGy neutron exposer to the eye.

(c)

To determine

The dose in mSv foe a 1.5 mGy α exposer.
