What is Radiation-Exposure?

An electrometer was the first device that measured the radiation intensity. It lost the charge because of the activity of radium rays and became the basis for the creation of the ionization chamber. The latter was developed for the determination of the quantity of ions formed in the air inside it.

The quantity measured is known as the exposure dose. It was given different units and the radiation exposure calculator helps with their conversions.

How to calculate Radiation-Exposure?

The basic unit for this metric is the roentgen. According to the radiation exposure formula, at a dose of 1 R one unit of the charge of each of the ions (3.3310-10 C) is formed in 1 cm3 of dry air.

This corresponds to 2.082*109 pairs of ions. The standard 1 mg of an ampoule radium creates a dose of 8.4 roentgens per hour.

The standard system does not have a special unit for this type of dose and utilizes a coulomb per kilogram, and 1 C/kg is equal to 3875.97 R. Still, nowadays it is used quite rarely due to the lack of practical application.
