Effects Of Radiation
1,821 wordsChernobyl The topic I have chosen for this term paper is 'Ex-Soviet Bloc " 's Environmental Crisis, Issue C. ' #2 Upgrading nuclear reactors to meet international standards. I have chosen this topic because nuclear power is not only an environmental issue but also a severe health issue for the citizens around the nuclear site and also for the rest of the country and world because of food products that could be grown there and used as market items. Nuclear radiation is in no way healthy to anyone...
Effects Of Low Doses Of Radiation
654 wordsThe Biological Effects of Radiation Whether the source of radiation is natural or man made, whether it is a small dose of radiation or a large dose, there will be some biological effects. Radiation causes ionization's of atoms, which will affect molecules, which may affect cells, which may affect tissues, and so on. Although most people tend to think of biological effects in terms of the effect of radiation on living cells, in actuality, ionizing radiation, by definition, interacts only with ato...
Most Deadly Effects Of A Nuclear Blast
2,299 wordsSean Anthony PulsiferMrs. Karen Yeager Advanced Composition 123 December 1999 Nuclear Weapons: Scars on the Earth Nuclear weapons have a long-lasting and devastating effect on the world for many years after an initial explosion. Fallout from United States atmospheric testing from 1945 to 1963 killed an estimated 70,000 to 800,000 people worldwide. People who have worked in the early nuclear weapons programs have been exposed to significant amounts of radiation (Schwartz 395). When a nuclear weap...
Effect Of Mobile Phone Radiation In Humans
307 wordsThe effect of mobile phone radiation in humans is still being questioned. In Britain a 27 year old woman with a brain tumour is taking a mobile phone manufacturer to court who she blames for her tumour. A biologist, Roger Cog hill has also been given permission to bring a case against a provider of mobile phone equipment for failing to warn people of radiation hazards. A wide variety of electrical devices contribute to electro smog, ranging from computers, to phones, TV sets, radar transmitter a...
Effects Of A Nuclear Exchange
793 wordsEffects of a Nuclear Exchange "The tragedy of war is that it uses man's best to do man's worst". - Henry Fosdick. This quote greatly reflects the time and effort of scientists put into the development of nuclear weapons for war. If a nuclear war were to take place in the coming future, it would be a result of growing tension between multiple highly powerful countries. As the tension would grow, a final day would come closer and closer. The heated issues and demands would finally spark an attack,...
Hole In The Ozone Layer
282 wordsBut there is a significant pending problem in the ozone layer. Each year, a large hole appears in it. It is not an actual hole, like a hole in a pocket, but a thinning in the layer that shows up on satellite pictures. The 'hole' is located over Antarctica. It covers an area about the size of the United States. Experiments done in Antarctica show that the hole in the ozone layer appears to let in twice as much ultraviolet radiation as normal, according to measurements researchers made there only ...

Vibrational Raman Line
1,570 wordsMeasurement of Molecular Excitation Spectra by Laser Raman Effect ABSTRACT The phenomenon known as the Raman effect allows us to probe the energy levels intrinsic to a given molecule, giving us knowledge about its rotational and vibrational energies. By illuminating a transparent sample, either liquid, gas, or crystal, with an intense source of light, (preferably monochromatic or at least with sufficiently well- known and distinct spectral lines), inelastic scattering of electromagnetic radiatio...
Patient's Question About Radiation Dose
2,117 wordsAn occasional patient will ask: "Are x-rays safe?" Others will ask about the amount of radiation. As a radiologist you have a responsibility to give a reasonably honest and understandable answer to the patient. You can certainly explain that diagnostic x-rays are safe. There are no data to indicate otherwise. There is evidence that suggest that such low doses may actually reduce the chance of cancer. 1 The question about amount is difficult to answer in an understandable way. First, because it i...
