NaI detector in water source -- gamma & beta

  • #1

Homework Statement


simulation of bersiv function of NaI detector it's in cylinder of water with volumetric source of Potassium40 (90% beta 1.31 mev & 10% gamma 1.504 mev )
how candefin define electron and gamma Volumetric source in mcnpx (6) ?

Thanks for the post! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

What does mcnpx (6) mean?

What is "detc"?

this is my solution:
NaI dect in wather source
The information in the table below is not clear. Also, what is "dect"? Above you have "detc". I don't understand either of these. Are they short for "detector"?

3 0 -7 #1 #2 imp:p=1
4 0 7 imp:p=0
The table below is meaningless, as far as I can tell. What do "cz", "pz", and "so" mean? And what is the significance of the numbers?

I don't know how you can expect anyone to help here, with tables of numbers with no explanation for what the numbers mean.
