Is there any material that can stop penetration of gamma radiations?
No there is no material discovered which can stop the penetration of gamma radiations
Foam don't stop penetrating radiations (neutrons, beta, gamma lasers etc).
Lead can stop gamma particles really fast because it is so dense. Gamma particles can also be reduced by water.
Exposure to Radiations like gamma rays. But in some cases it is idiopathic
paper and flesh
Any material can shield gamma rays, but to reduce the gamma rays significantly may require a thick layer of shielding - especially in the case of high-energy gamma rays.
Gamma rays can penetrate just about any type of matter. It takes meters of thick material to shield people from gamma rays.
yes, but there is only one known material that can stop it, lead
lead with a high density,since material with a higher density will reduce the intensity of radiation passing through the material....
gamma rays can be stop by lead block
no. no material can completely stop gamma rays. however, several feet of concrete or a few feet or lead will break the ray. it must be very dense, and tightly compacted. your welcome:)
lead is a very dense material and can stop most radiation particles, although it is still dangerous as some gamma rays may get through.
Alpha is completely stopped by one sheet of paper or your outer skin layer. Beta needs several inches of material to stop it. Gamma requires tens of feet of concrete or lead to stop it. Neutrons require 10s of feet of borated concrete or a similar amount of water to stop them.
First of all its a Alpha particle, and a gamma wave, Paper can stop alpha, and nothing can stop gamma, but it is slowed down by lead, and concrete.
penetration does not effect menstruation in any way
Almost any material can stop this if used in sufficient quantities. However, several common materials used are lead, barium sulfate, concrete, and sometimes depleted uranium.
Pretty much anything, it would take a few metres depth of lead or some equally dense material to stop it.
i think it takes about 3 inches of solid led to stop a gamma rays.
Dense materials stop gamma rays such as led.
Gamma rays are called penetrating radiation because they have high energy and can penetrate many materials to a considerable depth. It requires a significant thickness of a dense material such as lead to stop gamma rays. This is in contrast to alpha rays, which are non-penetrating. Even a sheet of paper is enough to stop most alpha particles. Beta rays are somewhere in between.
Ozone, or O3, absorbs the radiation.
yes it can stop it
If you want to stop high energy radiation such as gamma rays, you are going to need thick sheets of concrete around the radiation source. Some other forms of electromagnetic radiations are not high in energy and can essentially be stopped by thin sheet of metal. Prolonged exposure to high energy radiation can lead to serious health complications.
It seems that any matter will stop part of the gamma rays; to stop most of the gamma rays from passing, you would need a fairly thick layer of matter. The thickness required to block half of the gamma rays depends on the energy of the gamma rays. Just about any matter will do. For more details, check the Wikipedia article "Gamma ray", section "Shielding".
Gamma radiation is the most penetrating of the three radiations so it will penetrate the deepest into the human body. Alpha particles are usually stopped by the human skin but beta particles require some external protection to stop entering into the human body.
The atmoshere can stop the gamma ray but the half of the atmosphere that gets hit by the gamma ray will be destroyed. Chemicals in the gamma ray will eat the ozone and destroy the atmosphere leaving the earth unprotected against the suns U-V rays.
Alpha - Skin or paper is enough to stop Alpha radiation Beta - Thin aluminum or plastic stops Beta Gamma - Thick lead blocks Gamma
There are three primary types of nuclear radiation. Bricks will block both alpha particles and the more deeply penetrating beta particles. To stop gamma radiation, you would need several feet of brick. Lead is considered a better material for blocking high energy gamma rays.
Gamma rays, if strong enough, can cause cancer if you are around them too much. There are methods to stop it, though, but gamma rays are hard to prevent. They can be really unhealthy to the human body.
The material that is most usually used to stop radiation is lead. Lead is composed of large atoms, being a heavy element with a high atomic number, and it is therefore quite opaque to radiation of all sorts. There are many other heavy elements which can stop radiation, however, lead is the most easily available. You can use platinum as well, but it is thousands of times more expensive than lead.
An eight inch thick lead shield.
To stop gamma rays you need 2-3 inches of lead. So anything less dense then that they can travel through.
Yes, enough of it can. But boron or cadmium would be better.
Gamma radiation (commonly emitted by Radium-226) is stopped with very dense materials, most commonly lead.
. The oxygen and nitrogen from the exosphere down to the "ozone layer" (lower stratosphere) serve to stop gamma radiation coming from outside into our atmosphere.
The material necessary to stop an alphe particle is an piece of paper.
How would you list alpha partcles beta particles and gamma rays in order of increasing penetrating power?
Alpha particles are the least penetrating, and are not able to pass through a single sheet of paper. Beta particles can penetrate through a sheet of paper, but not a piece of aluminum. Gamma rays can travel through both paper and aluminum and it takes dense material like lead to stop them or reduce their number. Gamma rays are high energy electromagnetic rays.
Lots of lubrication and going slow,...don't rush the first penetration.
Ozone layer is present at 10-50 km in the atmosphere. It can easily stop the UV-C radiations.
A few millimetres of aluminum or several centimetres of air would stop a Beta particle. A few cms. of air or gas and a few mm of a liquid as water and a metal foil may stop the beta radiations.
A few cms. of air or gas and a few mm of a liquid as water and a metal foil may stop the beta radiations.
If you are asking about which radiation is the most penetrating, gamma rays are the "strongest" in that regard. Gamma rays are electromagnetic radiation of the highest possible energy (frequency). It has a higher frequency (shorter wavelength) than even X-rays. It has the greatest ability to penetrate materials. A gamma ray can go through a hundred people with ease. It takes a very large mass to be effective in stopping gamma radiation. Any material can… Read More
Well It would most likely be gamma rays (gamma radiation) as it takes a wall of concrete several meters thick to stop them 2nd answer: Another form of radiation results in the emission of neutrinos, which are said to have no mass. As a result, they can whiz right through the earth, not to mention humans.
There are four types of radiation, alpha particles, beta particles, gamma rays, and x-rays. Alpha particles are dangerous if you ingest them or breath them in, you can stop them with a piece of paper. Beta particles are dangerous because they can go through the skin and destroy cells, you can stop them with a piece of aluminum foil. Gamma rays and X-rays have no mass, they are energy released from an atom when it… Read More
A resin can be painted on the surface to stop water penetration in to the cement but on its own cement in its hard for is already water proof
It depends on where the radiation is coming from. Alpha particles are the least penetrating, having the most mass and the most charge. They can be stopped with only a few inches of air or the skin. Beta particles are middle of the road. They have small mass, and only half the charge of an alpha particle. They can be stopped with a millimeter or so of aluminum, so they have more penetrating power. Gamma… Read More
It is easy to protect against exposure to alpha or beta particles. However gamma rays easily penetrate through thick materials. You need something dozens of yards thick, like lead or concrete, to stop gamma rays).
NO. Gamma radiation is not easily blocked as it can pass between the electron shell and the nucleus of an atom as if those were not there at all. The only way to block gamma radiation is to have enough atoms one behind the other that have enough nucleus to block the path. Dense materials are more effective.
To stop the edges of the material from fraying.
No, it cannot. Alpha particles can be stopped using aluminum foil. Beta particles (electrons) posses higher kinetic energy and have smaller cross section. Lead is widely used to stop beta particles as well as gamma particles. Gamma particles are basically high energy photons which are extremely dangerous for alive creatures. Extra precaution must be taken when you are working with such radiation.
Dead! What is meant by death? Not able to emit radiations? Then daily supply of energy for the plants stop and thereby no growth and so living becomes tedious!
