4 x 106 n/m2s. 1 TBq cobalt-60 source. 1 TBq = 10" dis/s, but for 60Co there are two y-photons per disintegration. 6 X 1010 y-photons/(m2s). 9 RELATIONSHIP OF UNITS The relationship of the units which have now been introduced is illustrated in Fig. 4. The gray describes an absorbed dose in any medium and the sievert expresses biological effect on the human body. In health physics, it is clearly the biological effect of radiation which is of interest and so whenever possible equivalent dose or effective dose should be used.
For this reason very strict control is exercised over the dispersal of radioactive waste to the environment. The problems of radioactive waste disposal are discussed in Chapter 11. Fall-out from weapons testing The nuclides of concern in radioactive fall-out from nuclear weapons testing are similar to those arising from the operation of nuclear power stations. 0 years). Strontium-90 concentrates in the skeleton and caesium-137 is distributed uniformly throughout the body. Some of the radionuclides created during a nuclear test are injected into the stratosphere (10-20 km) and are carried around the Earth several times.
2. The physicochemical stage, lasting about 10-6 s, in which the ions interact with other water molecules resulting in a number of new products. For example, the positive ion dissociates: H 20+ ~ H+ + OH The negative ion, that is the electron, attaches to a neutral water molecule which then dissociates: H 20 + e- ~ H 20- H20-~ H + OH- Thus the products of the reactions are H+, OH-, Hand OH. The two former ions, which are present to quite a large extent in ordinary water, take no part in subsequent reactions.
