How the measurement of radioactivity works? At the very least, you need to understand it to a certain extent so you can measure radioactivity levels on your own.
If you want to check the levels of radiation in your home from building materials, the basement and other potential sources, you can use a radiation Geiger counter. This widely used instrument finds gamma rays, alpha and beta particles, and nuclear radiation. Instead of having a professional come to test your home, you can actually buy your own Geiger counter.
You may already know that a Geiger counter, also known as a Geiger Muller detector, measures radioactivity levels in a specified area. It contains a tube, called the Geiger Mueller tube or GM tube, that picks up on different types of radiation, including alpha, gamma and beta varieties. You may wonder when and why this type of detector is used?
