(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. If the radiationlevel is 400mGy/hr at 2m from a point radiation source, what will be the radiation level at 6m

2. I figured that if the radiation was 400mGy/hr at 2m it have been 1600mGy/hr when emmitted from the sorce.

3. If the inverse square law works like at 2m from the source it covers an area of 4m2 and at 3m it covers an area of 9m2 i figured that at 6m it covers anarea of 36m2 so the radiation would be less by the same proportion?
