Formula: Ion Dose

Ion dose

Unit
A substance is irradiated with radioactive radiation. The ion dose \(J\) [C/kg] is the amount of charge (per mass) of the irradiated substance created by the ionization. The ion dose thus tells how strongly the radiation can ionize a substance.

Mass

Unit
Mass exposed to radioactive radiation.

Charge

Unit
Amount of charge created by ionization of the irradiated substance.
