Homework Help: Which form of particle acceleration is safer?

  1. Mar 9, 2014 #1
    1. Linear or Circular Acceleration (Synchrotron)

    2.I.e, which accelerator is safer in terms of radiation leakage and radiation outbreak.

    3. I thought a Linac would be safer.

    Interesting - in what way safer and what is your reasoning?
    What resources did you use to back up your thoughts?
    ... in this sort of question it is not good enough to say what you think, you also have to describe why you think that: why should other people agree with you?
