P1_6 Tipler Radiation Shielding

Luke Holmes, Daniel Treacher, Christian Michelbach


 This paper aims to investigate the use of copies of "Physics for Scientists and Engineers" by P. A. Tipler and G. Mosca to attenuate gamma rays. The number of copies of Tipler required to reduce a lethal beam of 100keV gamma rays delivering 8 Gy of radiation to a human being to a "safe" beam of 50 mGy was found to be 5 copies.
