What has the highest penetrating ability?


Which type of radiation has the highest penetrating ability Brainly?


What type of radiation has the lowest penetrating ability?

Alpha particles

Which type of decay has the greatest mass?

alpha decay

Which type of radioactive decay alpha beta or gamma is most dangerous?

Gamma rays are the most harmful external hazard. Beta particles can partially penetrate skin, causing “beta burns”. Alpha particles cannot penetrate intact skin. Gamma and x-rays can pass through a person damaging cells in their path.

Can gamma rays be converted to electricity?

Si solar cell itself can convert gamma ray to electricity, but the conversion efficiency is very low because the cell structure is optimized for solar light, not for gamma ray. For the gamma cell, it is important that the recombination of the electron-hole pairs generated in the cell should be suppressed.

What can survive radiation?

  • Cockroaches. Ew, gross…
  • Scorpions. Though there is no rigid study conducted on the number of radiation units scorpions can sustain, it is hypothesised that they can survive nuclear attacks better than most creatures as well.
  • Fruitflies.
  • Braconidae Wasps.
  • Humans.
  • The Tardigrade.
  • The Mummichog.
  • Deinococcus Radidurans.

How much radiation does it take to kill a cockroach?

Ross and Cochran found that a dose as low as 6.400 rads would kill 93% of immature German cockroaches – making cockroaches only six to fifteen times tougher than we frail humans. Sure, cockroaches survive radiation better than we do – but they curl up and die at doses than don’t even bother other insects.

Can cockroaches survive nuclear?

There are 4,600 species of cockroaches – and only a small percentage of them – around 30 species – exhibit pest-like behaviour, but it’s safe to say that any species of cockroach would not be able to survive a direct nuclear bomb blast; if the radiation doesn’t get them, the heat and impact will.
