521 R/Hr at 3 feet. If you put a lead blanket on it the dose rate will be 157 R/HR. What site are you working at? ;D

Thank you for participating. +K I gave the 1 year free membership to the first three responders.  I'll have another question next week.

Is it 402.84 curies before the 16 months or is it 402.84 curies after 16 months?

You can only get the most correct answer if you make the same assumption as the question's author.

It is 402.84 prior to decaying for 16 months.

Ao = 402.84 Ci

The only thing even remotely 'challenging' about this exercise is that I didn't supply the T1/2 (or, I suppose, the decay energy), but it's such a common element in our industry, I assumed no one would need it. -- And I was right.

My answers:

((403*15/9)*(0.5^((16/12)/5.3)))=564.2 R/hr

or

((402.84*(6*((0.34693*0.000076)+(0.82606*0.000076)+(1.173237*0.999736)+(1.332501*0.999856)+(2.15857*0.0000111)+(2.5*0.00000002))))/(3^2))*(0.5^((16/12)/5.2714))=564.635214801879 R/hr

Of course 6CEN is in R/hr is not Rem/hr, and we need the dose rate so we have to convert it to Rem...

Quote
Roentgen and Rem (Roentgen Equivalent Man) are often used interchangeably. If you are curious; 1 Roentgen is 87 ergs/g in air for photons greater than 10 keV and less than 3 MeV, which is about 92 to 96 ergs/g in people (depends on if you are talking about bone, muscle or fat).  The Rem is 100 ergs/gram in human tissue for photons of any energy. So 1 R Gamma is roughly 0.96 Rem Gamma.

542 Rem/Hr

Since Cap gun was farther off than the rest, (I would have taken anything from 563-565 R, but hoped for Rem), I'm going to give Capgun 6 months, and 6 months to milo, since he was technically the 3rd 'correct' answer.

Using Ray's calculator I got: 523.3 R/hr @3ft

However, if you ask it for Rem/hr you get 459 Rem/hr @ 3ft

Apparently Ray is using 87.7 ergs in dry air as his conversion, when it should really be 96 for soft tissue.



So... Maybe I'll give ol' Capgun his 6 months back.
