a roentgen(R) is called a __________ in SI units
and it measures_______.
air kerma (Gya), exposure
a rad is called a ____________
in SI units and measures_________.
gray(Gyt), absorbed dose
rad stands for: radiation absorbed dose
A curie(Ci) is called a ______ in SI units and measures
A rem is called a ________ in SI units and measures

What is a derived quantity?
- In physics there are three base quantities: mass, length, and time which are the building blocks of all other quantities. The derived quantities are a combination of one or more of the three base quantities.
- Examples: length cubed=volume, length/time =velocity
What does rem stand for?
- radiation equivalent man
- measures effective dose
- SI unit:Sievert(Sv)

- NEWTON'S 3RD LAW
- Example:if we step off a boat onto the bank of a lake: as we move in the direction of the shore, the boat tends to move in the opposite direction (leaving us facedown in the water, if we aren't careful!).
