Hello, it is my first post created in this forum :) I'm interested in physics of radiation burn. How does it work? In my opinion high-energy particles (like photons, neutrons etc.) leave their energy inside human body (for example breaking bonds in DNA). This event trigger primary electrons with high kinetic energy. During their collisions with molecules/atoms they cause vibrations of the molecules/atoms. And as we know - vibrations mean high temperature. What do you think about this explanation?
