Ionising Radiation

HideShow resource information

The radiations from radioactive materials alphabeta and gamma radiation are all ionising radiations which can damage living cells.

Ionising radiation can break molecules into smaller fragments. These charged particles are called ions. Ions can then take part in other chemical reactions in the living cells. As a result, ionising radiation…
