Abstract | Full Text

In this study, dependence of gamma-ray absorption coefficient on the size of Pb particle size ranging from 200┬Ám up to 2.5mm, using different weights of each particle size. The results show that gamma-ray attenuation coefficient is inversely proportional with the size of Pb particle size due to the reduction of the spaces between the lead particles.
