    Hi Lgx. I'm not understanding the problem... can you explain it further? You need to convert 300mA (milli - amps?)... what do you need to convert it to?

    Hello, My question is converting 30mAs with a 8:1 grid ration to a 16:1 grid

    The grid ratios is 8:1 which is 4 for number of lead strips and I am changing to 16:1 which that is also in number of lead strips is 6. I will need to convert 30mAs with a 8:1 grid (4) and change it to a 16:1 (6) grid. This is for radiography

    I wish I could help. I don't know anything about radiography. :( Hopefully someone else will know about how to solve this.

    As with any other homework problem, we first require you to show your work/effort/ideas/thoughts...anything.
