    Title: High vs. Low Energy Radiation
    Type: Text Slide
    Content:
    • Absorption of radiation is the process of transferring the energy of the radiation to the atoms of the media through which it is passing.
    • Higher energy radiation of the same type will penetrate further.
    • Usually expressed in KeV or MeV
    • 1 eV = 1.6 x 10-19 Joules = 1.6 x 10-12 ergs
