Problem

Tests on human subjects in Boston in 1965 and 1966, following the era of atomic bomb testing, revealed average quantities of about 2 pCi of plutonium radioactivity in the average person.

If each alpha particle deposits 8 x 10 - 13 J of energy and if the average person weighs 76 kg , calculate the number of rads and rems of radiation in 4 yr from such a level of plutonium.
