# The Quotient of Absorbed Dose and the Collision Part of Kerma for Photon Beams

• Published : 1980.12.30

#### Abstract

With the conceptual definition of the quotient(${\beta}$) of absorbed dose and the collision part of kerma for photon beams, the procedure of computing ${\beta}$ is briefly described. A series of calculations of ${\beta}$ was carried out for photons of 0.4, 0.5, 1 and 2 MeV in polystyrene, carbon, air and aluminum. Resultant values are tabulated and evaluated.
