Title: Nuclear Energy: Radiation Exposure PDF
Url: https://esa21.kennesaw.edu/activities/exposure/radiationactivity.pdf
Creator: Pratte, John
Publisher: Kennesaw State University
Description: This lesson provides an overview of the sources and potential effects of radiation exposure. Topics include the history of the United States' domestic nuclear power program, the concept of ionizing radiation, and how radiation dosage is measured. There is also discussion of what constitutes a lethal dose of radiation and potential sources of exposure. The lesson includes an activity in which students measure their individual yearly exposures to radiation by making an inventory of lifestyle factors that affect their potential dosage and using an online calculator to sum up the contributions from the various sources.
