Nuclear: attenuation

  1. Apr 29, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I've attached the problem and my attempt at it as a picture attached. I've done part b.i) although I'm not sure if it's entirely correct. I'm struggling with the last part b.iii). This is where I have to calculate the thickness of aluminium instead. I'm given the atomic number, atomic mass, and density. But I don't have he attenuation coefficient, which is what I think I need.

    Thank you.
