An alterative to shielding of the radiation source in question 7 is to extend the distance between the radiation source

9. An alterative to shielding of the radiation source in question 7, is to extend the distance between the radiation source and the worker. The initial design places the worker 1m, from the source. If the design was revised so the worker was 10m from the source, what percentage reduction in radiation exposure would there […]
