The inverse square law and protection by distance (video)

Source: Ionactive Radiation Protection Resources

A video from some years ago (2008) - but still of educational and training interest. An animated description of the inverse square law as applied to uses of ionising radiation. This video shows how radiation protection can be enhanced using protection by distance (from an external source of gamma or x-rays).

Notes on this video

This particular video on the inverse square law and protection by distance is from 2008. Unlike most of the other videos featured in this section, we have have not found a higher resolution than that originally submitted to YouTube.  However the educational amenity of this animation is still strong, particularly the simulation of a counter showing protection by distance both visually and audibly.
