Solving for Source Strength or Total Radioactivity in Becquerels

note: Avogadro's number = N^{0} = 6.02 x 10^{23} atoms/gram-atom

disintegration constant (K _{T})= 0 = 0 second^-1 |

radionuclide mass (M) = 0 = 0 gram |

radionuclide atomic weight (W) = 0 = 0 gram/gram-atom |

source strength or total radioactivity (Q) = NOT CALCULATED |

Select to solve for a different unknown

quality factor

equivalent dose - measures the amount of effective biological damage caused by radiation | |

absorbed dose - measure of the amount of energy absorbed into material | |

solve for quality factor |

unit conversion factors

equivalent dose - SI unit is rem (roentgen equivalent man) - US unit is sievert | |

absorbed dose - SI unit is rad - US unit is gray | |

total radioactivity - SI unit is becquerel - US unit is curie |

Where

N | = | number of nuclei remaining after a time period |

N_{0} | = | initial number of nuclei |

K_{b} and K_{T} | = | disintegration constant |

t_{1/2} | = | half life time of radionuclide |

Q | = | total radioactivity or source strength |

N^{0} | = | Avogadro's number, 6.02 x 10^{23} atom/gram-atom |

W | = | atomic weight |
