Asked in Nuclear Physics
What is a good stopper of ionizing radiation?
If by ionising radiation you mean alpha radiation (the most ionising out of alpha, beta and gamma radiation) then about a millimetre of paper would stop it. alpha radiation ionises the molecules of anything it reaches, but can pass through very few things due to its immense ionising power. This includes human tissue, but in all honesty, a large dose of alpha radiation wouldn't do human tissue alot of good. In short, almost any material can stop ionising radiation.
Asked in Chemistry
Compare the penetrating power of alpha beta and gamma radiation?
Alpha radiation is the weakest. It can be stopped by a piece of paper and posses no threat to any human tissue. Beta radiation is strong, but still not lethal. It can be stopped by most clothing or fabrics. Gamma radiation is the strongest. It can only be stopped by lead. It posses great harm to tissue that it comes in contact with.
