Problem 95P

If a person living in a high-radon area is exposed to 0.400 rem of radiation from radon per year, and his total exposure is 0.585 rem, what percentage of his total exposure is due to radon?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution:

The person is living in a high radon area is exposed to radiations from various sources.

Her radiation exposure from radon = 0.400 rem

Total exposure =  0.585 rem

Here we have to calculate the % of total exposure due to radon.

 100  = 68.37%

Thus  68.37% of his total exposure is due to radon.
