What is Radiation-Absorbed Dose?
At first, the effect of ionizing emission was measured in the air and evaluated as an exposure effect only. However, later appeared that it is much more complex and diverse. For instance, different physicochemical changes appeared in the affected substance due to a certain effect, which was not directly proportional to the exposure.
Therefore, the concept of absorption arose as the evaluation of energy that was taken by the substance.
How to calculate Radiation-Absorbed Dose?
This dose shows the amount of energy absorbed per unit mass of the substance. It is determined by the ratio of the absorbed energy of ionizing radiation to the mass of the object.
The standard unit for this measurement is Gray or Gy for short. One Gy is equal to the dose at which 1 joule of ionizing radiation energy is transferred to a mass of 1 kg. One more non-systematic unit is the rad. 1 Gy corresponds to 100 rad.
