# Equivalent Dose Calculator

Posted by Dinesh onUse this simple atomic physics calculator to calculate equivalent dose absorbed by tissue for radiological protection online.

Radiation | Energy | W_{R} (formerly Q) |
---|---|---|

protons, charged pions | 2 | |

alpha particles,Nuclear fission products,heavy nuclei | 20 | |

x-rays, gamma rays,beta particles, muons | 1 | |

neutrons | < 1 MeV | 2.5 + 18.2e^{?[ln(E)]²/6} |

1 MeV - 50 MeV | 5.0 + 17.0e^{?[ln(2*E)]²/6} | |

>50 MeV | 2.5 + 3.25e^{?[ln(0.04*E)]²/6} |

## Equivalent Dose - Radiological Protection Calculation

### Formula:

H_{T} = D × Q

H

_{T}- is the equivalent dose absorbed by tissue T

D - is the absorbed dose in tissue T by radiation type R

W

_{R}or D - is the radiation weighting factor defined by ICRP regulation
