A source is used for 1.4 hours by a 62-kg worker. Radioactive decays by decay with a halflife of 30 yr. The average energy of the emitted betas is about 190 keV per decay. The decay is quickly followed by a with an energy of 660 keV. Assuming the person absorbs all emitted energy, what effective dose (in rem) is received?
