High energy question

  1. Jan 26, 2008 #1
    how do i calculate the depth of water an electron takes to stop at different energies?
    ( for instance at 10MeV is 6cm) would it be a dirrect relationship?
    Also i need to know how to calculate shielding for the xrays created. Thickness of concrete? (per MeV)
    thanks
