the mass attenuation coefficient is related to the maximum kinetic energy of the beta ray spectrum ( T max) by this equation(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

mu subscribe m (symbol) = 1.7 / (1.14

T max)

the problem here is that the denominator in my text is in the form of a matrix and as well all know a matrix doesn't give you a number so how do i evaluate it.
