Absorption of Gamma Photons - Plot data

Using pen and paper, write down values for the intensity ratio vs. absorber thickness from the Linear attenuation simulation. Try this for different energy values and absorber materials.

Have a go! Enter the values for intensity ratio vs thickness into the graph plotting exercise opposite.

You can plot three curves together for comparison. Use the reset button after plotting three graphs.

Note: fill in all the input boxes. If the intensity is zero, fill in 0.0. If the intensity is 100% fill in 100.0.
