Given:

Electron Flux (Current)=8.75e16 Electrons per second

Energy of Electrons= 120 keV per Electron

Density of Titanium= 4.506 g per cm^3

Thickness of Titanium= .0254 cm

Surface area of Titanium= 100 cm^2

Is there a formula that accurately describes the attenuation coefficient of electrons (or beta particles) based on the Z (# of protons) of the absorber. I am interested in the average energy deposited per electron or average energy deposited per second.
