On a Diffuse Reflection of the α – Particles
When β-particles fall on a plate, a strong radiation emerges from the same side of the plate as that on which the β-particles fall. This radiation is regarded by many observers as a secondaryExpand
On a Diffuse Reflection of the $ \alpha $-Particles
When β -particles fall on a plate, a strong radiation emerges from the same side of the plate as that on which the β -particles fall. This radiation is regarded by many observers as a secondaryExpand
LXI. The laws of deflexion of a particles through large angles
In a former paper1 one of us shown that in the passage of α particles through matter the deflexions are, on the average, small and of the order of a few degrees only. In the experiments a narrowExpand
Radioactivity of Soils, Plants and Bones
TLDR
Evidence is presented which indicated low fertility in areas of high local radioactivity, and the question is raised of the selective breeding of radiation-resistant types. Expand
Incidence and Possible Significance of Inhaled or Ingested Polonium
Alpha-Particle Activity and Free Radicals from Tobacco
Results are reported from measurements of alpha activity in leaf tobacco used for cigarettes, in cigarettes on the market in the United Kingdom, and in specially-made standard size unblendedExpand
Radioactivity of Soils, Plant Ashes and Animal Bones
Alpha-activity measurements were made of bones of a New Zealand cow and ewe and their offspring. Also some observations on the influence of superphosphate on plant and animal uptake of radioactivityExpand
RADIOACTIVITY OF SOME ROCKS, SOILS, PLANTS, AND BONES.
Alpha-Activity of Wheat and Flour
TLDR
The wide range of alpha-radioactivity found in the more common foodstuffs has been indicated and measurements on a number of samples of wheat and wheat products of known origin are made. Expand
