Does it matter if aluminum absorbers are near a Geiger-Muller detector when you have a radioactive source of beta particles?

It does if you want to detect the beta radiation. Beta radiation, beta particles, can be stopped with a sheet of aluminum foil. An aluminum "absorber" would act as a shield to the Geiger-Müller (GM) detector and stop the beta radiation, which is really high energy electrons or possibly positrons. Placing a shield between the source of the beta radiation and the GM detector would block the radiation, thus shielding the detector from it. The detector would be "blind" to the radiation. Note that this would be effective if all you wanted to do was look at gamma rays. The gamma rays and the beta radiation would leave the source and head to the GM detector, the beta particles would be blocked by the aluminum, and only the gamma rays would make it to the GM tube to be counted. Links can be found below.

Are UV light and UV rays the same thing?

Yes, UV light and UV rays are the same thing, light emit "rays."

Can rays be with freshwater goldfish?

The only rays that I know of need tropical conditions (some saltwater, some fresh, but both tropical). So the answer is No.. Since goldfish need cold water, they would not be able to co-habit.

We need protection from UV rays. These are high energy and wavelength rays.

A Geiger counter is used to measure?

A Geiger counter is a particle detector which is used to measure radiation: alpha particles, beta particles, and gamma rays.

Should you stay in the sun?

Yes, sunlight is good for our body. It stimulates our body to create proteins, just like it helps with photosynthesis in plants. The only thing you need to look out for are UV-rays. The sunlight consists of 'normal' light rays, infrared rays and Ultra-Violet rays. The Ultra-Violet rays are harmful for the human body. It can cause skin cancer when the body is exposed for too long.

What are mechanical rays?

Rays which need a medium to travel.

Which is harmful rays for human body?

One of the most harmful rays {for skin} is UV {Ultra-Violet} rays. That is the only thing that comes to mind when you mention "harmful rays for the human body". Not only can it cause skin cancer, but it can leave your skin burnt red and hurting for days, possibly weeks. Though we need the sun rays, the downfall to getting too much sun is getting skin cancer which is fatal.

Why are X-rays called X-rays?

X-rays got the name because when they were first discovered, they did not know exactly what kind of ray it was or where it came from. They called them "X" rays, for "unknown" rays. Apparently, the name stuck.X Rays were given their name because their discoverer did not know of their nature.

CT scans differ from conventional x ray by collecting x rays that have passed through the body (those not absorbed by tissue) with an electronic detector mounted on a rotating frame rather than on film.

What harmful rays are shining during a solar eclipse?

There are no rays shining that are unique to the solar eclipse. The same rays shine down any time the sun is in the sky. The thing that's different about an eclipse is that it arouses curiosity, and people who know better are tempted to stand there and stare at the sun, which is a stupid and dangerous thing to do. That's why you always hear extra caution warnings when an eclipse is coming.

What is alpha particle detector and what is the application of bjt in alpha particle detector?

A Geiger counter, also called a Geiger-Müller counter, is a type of particle detector that measures ionizing radiation. They detect the emission of nuclear radiation: alpha particles, beta particles or gamma rays. A Geiger counter detects radiation by ionization produced in a low-pressure gas in a Geiger-Müller tube
