1. Microwaves , radiowaves ,gamma rays and visible light - which one cannot detected by film?

2. Gamma rays , beta rays ,neutrons and alphas - which one has the shortest range in tissue ?( assume equal enegy)

thanks

1. My guess would be the one with the lowest frequency.

2. I would think the largest (most massive) particle would have the shortest range.

The longer wavelengths (microwaves, radio waves) cannot be detected by film.

Charge particles (beta and alpha) have much shorter ranges, with alpha (heavier) shorter than beta. Neutral particles (gamma and neutrons) will penetrate quite deeply.

Can u explain why microwaves and radiowave cannot detected my film ? thanks

Microwaves and radiowaves can't be detected by photographic film. I'm not sure about gamma rays but I doub't film can detect them.

I'm not sure that we can assume equal energy since the distance is a function of energy. Therefore it may be the case that when one has a lower energy it has a shorter range and when the energy is higher the range changes. Sorry if that doesn't help.

well, it is a question from Raphex - exam from Radiology ....
