Radioactive Radon Gas and its Measurement Methods

Entesser Farhan Salman*

The radon concentration in surrounding soil one of many parameters that impact on radon health risk of a house. The construction of the house, the porosity of the soil, the height of the ground water, and several other factors, are all-important. Even if there is no radon in the surrounding soil, the house may still be at risk if it has a well in the basement, or is built on rock, over a fissure. Nevertheless, it is often of interest to determine the radon concentration in soil gas. In this chapter, we focus on radioactive radon gas, its transmission methods of soil to the air, the most important health risks resulting from inhalation of smokers and non-smokers, colon and lung cancer resulting from it, the devices used in this year’s measurement. One of the most important devices used to measure its concentration are nuclear trace detectors. Solid state nuclear reagents are classified into two main categories: Organic reagents and inorganic reagents. Inorganic reagents are those reagents that do not include the elements carbon and hydrogen, and the most prominent types of these reagents that are widely used in the field of nuclear physics are mica and glass, and they are good inorganic reagents for recording the effects of neutrons and fission fragments and are used in detecting neutrons, especially in nuclear reactors, in order to withstand them high temperatures, and how to design trace detectors to measure the path of alpha particles for the purpose of measuring its.
