Abstract. Electromagnetic radiation, in its passage through matter, interacts in a variety of ways. The type of interaction depends on (1) photon energy, (2) Z of the material and (3) particle or field with which the photon interacts. There is a basic difference between the energy loss of photons and that of charged : Anwar Kamal.

A minor dependence on M at the highest energies is introduced through W max, but for all practical purposes hdE/dxi in a given material is a function of β alone. Few concepts in high-energy physics are as misused as hdE/ Size: KB. Bichsel: “Passage of Charged Particles through Matter” in American Institute of Physics Handbook 3rd Ed.

The ionizing electromagnetic radiation emitted from a highly evacuated tube, resulting from the excitation of the inner orbital electrons by the bombardment of the target anode with a stream of electrons from a heated cathode.

usually warms the materials that absorb it. Different gases in the atmosphere absorb these two different types of radiation.

The ozone layer protects life from harmful radiation. In Sectionyou read about a gas called ozone that forms in the stratosphere. An molecule (O 3) is made of three atoms of the element Size: KB. Gases in the earth's atmosphere, such as water vapor and carbon dioxide (CO2), that allow much of the sunlight to pass through but are strong absorbers of infrared energy emitted by the earth and the atmosphere.

Other greenhouse gases include methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), fluorocarbons (CFCs), and ozone (O3). The high energy and short wave radiations will make the atmosphere to heat the surface of the Earth. The surface radiates back the energy into the space in the form of long wave and low energy called infrared radiations.

The infrared radiations are absorbed by the gases in atmosphere making the temperature to rise.

A new technique is developed for approximating exchange factors for specular radiation passages. It is shown that for a large class of configurations, even with curved reflector surfaces, the average number of reflections can be calculated by a simple analytic formula and without any ray fraction of radiation transmitted through the passage, τ (one of the Cited by: The Bakerian Lecture: On the Absorption and Radiation of Heat by Gases and Vapours, and on the Physical Connexion of Radiation, Absorption, and Conduction.

Tyndall, J Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London (). – Earth’s atmosphere is primarily composed of Nitrogen and oxygen. These gases are transparent to both the incoming the solar radiation and outgoing infrared radiation. Thus, these gases do not absorb or emit the solar radiation and the infrared radiation.

Radiation exposure to astronauts could be a significant obstacle for long duration manned space exploration because of current uncertainties regarding the extent of biological effects. Furthermore, concepts for protective shielding also pose a technically challenging issue due to the nature of cosmic radiation and current mass and power constraints with modern Cited by: The 9°C discrepancy is due to the greenhouse effect.

The gases of the atmosphere are “selective absorbers”; energy in the visible part of the electromagnetic spectrum passes through the atmosphere directly to the Earth’s surface (with some reflection occurring as well).

This activity teaches Concept C - Greenhouse Effect. The amount of solar energy absorbed or radiated by Earth is modulated by the atmosphere and depends on its composition.

Greenhouse gases— such as water vapor, carbon dioxide, and methane— occur naturally in small amounts and absorb and release heat energy more efficiently than abundant atmospheric gases like.

only fraction of the outgoing radiation that is transmitted through the troposphere without undergoing appreciable absorption lies in the so-called atmospheric window between 7 and 13 µm. The only significant absorptions of infra-red radiation in the stratosphere are due to ozone.

What is the relationship between radiation intensity and distance? Derive a mathematical expression .Different types of radiation have different penetrating abilities. For example, gamma rays can pass through cloth and paper, but alpha particles are blocked by cloth and paper.

Beta particles are blocked by aluminum foil, but gamma rays are not. However, all three types of radiation are blocked by thick concrete or lead.
