Radiation Absorbed Dose Equivalent Units
The radiation absorbed dose equivalent units in the converter are gray (alpha particles), joule/kilogram, microsievert, millirem, millisievert, rem (roentgen eq. man) and sievert.
The most common radiation absorbed dose equivalent units are gray, rem and sievert.
What is Radiation Absorbed Dose Equivalent?
The radiation absorbed dose is the amount of energy stored as a result of an ionizing radiation.
Not all types of ionizing radiation are equally harmful. For example, equal dose of alpha radiation can cause more harm than the equivalent doses of beta and gamma radiation. This difference is expressed as equivalent dose in units of sievert (Sv).
