  32. The inverse square law expresses the relationship between ______ and _________  of radiation and governs the dose received.
    • Distance
    • intensity(quantity) 
  33. As the distance between the source of radiation and any given measurement point _______, radiation intensity(quantity)  measurement at that point _________ by the a square of the relative change in distance between the new location and the old.
