Problem 9Q

How do the ionizing power and penetrating power of alpha particles compare to other types of radiation?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 9Q:

The difference between an alpha particle to beta and gamma particle with respect to  ionizing power and penetrating power are given below.

Alpha particle

Beta particle

Gamma particles

Alpha radiation has the highest ionizing power among all the radiations.

Beta particles are much less

massive than alpha particles and consequently have a lower ionizing power.

Gamma particles have the lowest ionizing power among all radiation.

Alpha particles have the lowest penetrating power among all radiation due to its large size.

Beta particles have higher  penetrating power than alpha radiation due to its comparatively small size.

Gamma particles have the highest penetrating power among all radiation.
