Radiation is the emission or transmission of atoms in other words it is a decay of atoms. To measure radiation scientists use unit sievert , which quantifies the amount of radiation absorbed by human tissues.
📍One sievert is 1,000 millisieverts.
📍One millisievert is 1,000 microsieverts.
Radiation surrounds us everywhere. Smoke detectors, emergency lights, nuclear power, break stone, granite, the Sun all have in common RADIATION.
Kiev – 0.18
Chernobyl town – 0.12 mSv.
CNPN – up to 1. 5 mSv.
Contamination of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone is completely different.
One of our tour guides attempted to check the rate of radiation maintained in this scoop (contaminated ladle).
