2. What is resistance?

  • The measure of how hard it is to get a current throught a component at a particular voltage
  • Something that stops something

3. How is Radiation measured?

  • By the number of nuclear decays emitted per second
  • By the number of protons and neutron emitted

4. How do body scans involving ultrasound waves work?

  • The sound wave goes through the skin by osmosis and is reflected back
  • Ultrasound waves are reflected at boundaries. The time taken for these to be detected can be used to calculate the depth.
  • A loud noise is projected through the patients body until its echoed back. The loudness of the echo can be used to work out the depth
  • A sound wave goes through the body and the if you listen closely you can hear whats going on inside

5. What is alpha radiation?

  • an electromagnetic wave
