Background radiation can originate from a number of different sources. In this class, students will discuss these sources as well as changes in background radiation. They will cover what background radiation is, why it varies for the same sources across the UK and also why we need to take a corrected count when measuring the radiation from a source due to the background. This is a great class to act as revision of the topic or for those wanted to get ahead or fill a gap of missed education.

Safeguarding reminder:The safety of your child is of the utmost importance. All of our classes are pre-recorded to remove any concerns around live participation. For reruns of our past live classes, students' webcams and microphones were disabled and only the chat history, if participation was requested, is visible.
