    CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION TYPES OF RADIATION In order to appreciate how radiation energy works, it is imperative to know the types of radiation. The different sources of radiation can be grouped under either Ionising radiation or Non-ionising radiation. Ionizing radiation is a type of radiation that is made up of high-energy waves which has the capability of displacing and breaking atomic electron bonds holding up the molecules of matter together resulting in chemical change which can lead to harmful

    About 15% of the ionizing radiation exposure to the people comes from man-made sources and almost all of these exposures are due to medical radiation, which is vastly from diagnostic and therapeutic sources(9). Out of 3 mSv annual global per caput effective dose (2000), 2.4 mSv is from natural background and 0.4 mSv from diagnostic medical exams(5,9). and since then many new therapeutic and diagnostic methods have been implemented making the exposure dose due to medical radiation to go up. The problem

  • The Causes Of Radiation

    Radiation is the reactions caused by kinetic energy passing from one place to another. Radiation has been part of the human environment since the existence of Earth. Some sources of radiation are natural. However, others are artificial. Terrestrial sources of radiation are natural and come from the earth. They originate from radioactive materials in the earth's crust. The sun's rays are also a natural form of radiation called cosmic rays. (Statkiewicz-Sherer, 2017). Artificial sources of radiation

  • Radiation Is A Type Of Energy

    1392 Words  | 6 Pages

    Introduction Radiation is a type of energy that occurs naturally, and can be manmade. Radiation is always around us. Microwaves, computers and cellphones give off radiation. There are many other ways to get radiation as radiation therapy for cancer. Radiation travels in the form of waves or particles, depending on the type. Radioactive substances give off their energy over time, ranging from a fraction of a second to thousands of years. The period of time in which a radioactive substance
