Radioactivity: Internal Radiation

by Erika Winters


Submitted : Fall 2015

The purpose of this project is to assess the potential damage done to a person after exposure to radioactively contaminated liquid.  Depending on the concentration, amount ingested, and duration of absorption, the human may be at serious health risk.  Using integration, it is possible to determine the body burden on this person at any point after being exposed to the radioactive substance and calculate how long it takes to achieve that point.
