What metal is used to keep out radiation?
While it is running, it is producing microwaves which is a form of radiation. That is why there is the metal mesh on the door, to block the microwaves and keep them in the oven. The metal shell of the unit keep the microwaves from getting out. It is not radioactive by itself and does not have anything inside it that is.
Chuck Norris radiation.
Is a tongue freezing to to a metal pole a use of conduction or convection or radiation
Thorium is not a radiation but a chemical element, metal, natural and radioactive.
Often lead, though many different types of metal may be used, as long as they block radiation.
metal + radiation
Metal + radiation = plutonium
It would be an Other Metal, Lead(Pb).
the special metal is so strong with many layers it can with hold the radiation!!<3
A pocket of radiation is a place where radiation is highly concentrated. Found usually around metal objects as metal will store radiation much longer. When Chernobyl accident toke place, the force of the reactor explosion blasted large amount of debris up in the air, witch came back down around the reactor. This debris is highly radioactive and usually the cause of these Pockets of Radiation.
None. By radiation, we're referring to ionizing radiation, or radiation with high enough energy to cause molecular damage, or possibly DNA damage. Radiation therapy, CT scan, Nuclear scans and X-rays all use ionizing radiation. MRI uses magnetic fields to induce electric currents, and employs radiofrequeny waves ( a type of electromagnetic radiation) that is not ionizing radiation. It is a form of energy, and thus metal objects, and even metal in tattoos can heat up… Read More
Can radiation be absorbed into the metal you are wearing on your clothes when you are in the room with a person being radiated?
There are different answers for different questions, lets separate the two possible questions you might mean; a metal absorbing the radiation, or the metal becoming radioactive because of the radiation. Nuclear radiation is composed of neutrons, obviously you see why some metal are called neutron absorbers. In neutron absorbers the metal (e.g silver, lithium) are isotopes, (e.g uranium-235, uranium-238, not all isotopes are radioactive, but the uranium to the left is) they require neutrons to… Read More
Tin is the metal that is used to coat cans. The tin on the metal can acts a barrier to keep water and air away from the contents of the can.
they insluate radiation to create baby.
Im not sure, but its NOT microwave.
It is Lead, Pb plumbus.
the metal spoon is made of metal giving off radiation unlike the wooden spoon which does nothing Metal gives off radiation and the wood does not. also u would have less of a chance of it catching on fire if u use a metal one tha u woul dif u use a wooden one.
Because the electrons in the atoms of the metal are being excited to a higher energy level they must "de-excite" and go back down to a lower level. When this occurs EM radiation is given off. If this radiation is in the visible light domain it will have an associated wavelength. This wavelength happens to be in the visible spectrum of red/orange/yellow light when metal is heated. Also, there are other types of non-visible radiation… Read More
Air, metal, fat, and radiation
Solar radiation is what keeps the entire planet warm.
Gamma radiation (commonly emitted by Radium-226) is stopped with very dense materials, most commonly lead.
Lead is the most commonly used metal as shielding in radiation. Lead is economical and has got very high atomic number. This very high atomic number makes it suitable as a shielding agent in radiation, probably. You can use other metals like steel also. Probably with less efficacy.
Yes and No. Typical Metal detectors DO NOT give off radiation, but the next generation metal detectors DO. You won't be able to tell which one you are walking through, except for the general rule of thumb that the older looking machines will cause no harm while the other, newer looking machines might.
A radio telescope. -Megan Furelli
reverse process of photo electric effect is done by the supply of electrons or heat to the metal that radiate certain radiation. among them the metals which emit visible radiation are normally used in house hold appliances
No, metal and jewelry are not good to wear during radiation treatments or x-rays. It will scatter the beam and cause damage in undesired areas.
Lead, symbol Pb, and zinc are both used for these applications. See the related lunk below for more info:
Not yet. There are no known species that can eat fast enough to keep up with it, so a substrantial portion of the radiation always gets through.
No, microwaves are a form of electromagnetic radiation and like all electromagnetic radiation is composed of massless particles called photons or is waves depending on how it is measured. Copper is a metal.
Alpha particles can be stopped by a sheet of paper. Beta radiation requires sheet metal--such as a sheet of tin, or aluminum foil. Gamma radiation requires inches of lead to block.
A flame test...represents the different energies of electromagnetic radiation
It will keep the metal from rusting.
there are three ways in which heat travels; 1.Convection - This is when heat is transfered via a fluid. Ex. A hot peice of metal is put into water, while another peice of metal is in the water. The hot metal heats up the water, which in turn heats up the other metal. 2.Conduction - This is when heat is transfered via solid-to-solid contact. Ex. A a very hot metal rod is placed on a… Read More
Its called metal primer..specifically for metal...lets keep it that way.
Lead. Lead is a heavy metal that protects against x-ray and some forms of radiation.
A plastic container will keep a liquid hot longer than a metal container because plastic insulates heat better than metal.
They keep your shafts from getting loose, especially metal ones.
It is used to stop heat taken in by radiation as al is a good reflector of heat
why does a plastic container keep the contents cold longer than a metal container

Microwaves use low frequency radiation to cook your food. Radiation can be harmful to anyone, including an unborn baby. Although this is true, it is not necessarily a reason to worry. Lower frequency radiation is potentially less harmful than higher frequency radiation, which can cause a series of health issues for you and/or your baby. Microwaves are also built to keep radiation in. Microwave radiation can leak through faulty design/manufacturing, product damage/wear, and through a… Read More
Simple materials can be used like black plastic or metal pipe. You want materials that will absorb heat and transmit that heat to the liquid.
Beta particles or radiation is an electron emitted at high speed or energy from some types of unstable elements in a process known as beta-decay. Beta radiation is not healthy for living things. It is usually stopped by a few millimeters of metal, wood, or plastic. Direct exposure to the skin can cause radiation burns.
If you are referring to beta thickness gauging, an isotope emitting beta radiation is used. Sources commonly used include Promethium-147, Strontium-90 and Krypton-85. The source is usually enclosed in a protective cover, but I would keep my distance from it if I were you.

Not directly, but it allows them to monitor how much dose of radiation they have received over a period of time, so they can look at it and check they haven't received too much dosage.
Because you want type of low energy radiation that can be stopped by a very thin sheet of metal. or , indeed, paper. Beta would go through your skin and gamma, your house. af
During WW II there was a tremendous demand for metal, to be used to manufacture tanks, bombs, bullets, and other military supplies. To keep up with this demand it was useful to recycle scrap metal.
