How radon is measured?

Radon radioactivity is measured in becquerels (Bq) where1 becquerel = to the disintegration of one atomic nucleus per second* Concentration in air is measured in Bq/m3 or pCi/L (pico Curies per liter) * Concentrations in water is measured in Bq/l (becquerel per liter) * To transform from one unit to the other use this formula: 1 pCi/L = 37 Bq/m3

Can you detect radon gas with a geiger counter?

probably not possibleAnswer:Radon can be measured with a geiger counter by filtering an air sample then placing the filter in intimate contact with window of the meter. This is not a very accurate approach.Radon measurements can be done with commercially available:Electret Ion ChambersAlpha Track DetectorsCharcoal Canisters (for later examonation)Continuous Working Level MonitorssContinuous Radon MonitorsLiquid Scintillation equipment

In what units are radon levels measured?

Radon is radioactive, so it is measured using the principles of radiation physics. The way we discover the presence of radon actually involves looking for the radiation given off when radon decays. We have ways to "see" and to "count" the decays of radon. The unit of measure for radiation is the Curie (Ci), which is a heck of a lot of radiation. And we're measuring the levels in air. We actually measure radon levels in picocuries (pCi) per litre of air - pCi/L. What's a curie? 1 Ci = 3.7×1010 decays per second. That's what we mean when we say a curie is a lot of radiation. You don't want to be standing around in a radiation field like this. No way. And by the way, a picocurie is 10-12 Curie. Scary. But don't be afraid. Educate yourself, and make decisions from an informed perspective. Find out about testing for radon. Would a "group" of homeowners get a discount if they all got their homes tested? You could find out. Levels of radon must be kept as low as practicable, but in no cases should they exceed 4 picoCuries per liter (pCi/L) in indoor air. (The lowest parts of the structure will be most prone to radon buildup.)
