So we have an absorbed dose of 300mGy ( or 0.3 grays), this represents energy absorbed by the material divided by it's mass. But does not take into account the type of radiation or the tissue type. Effective dose does.

We can use two formula to gain an effective dose for strontium 89

Equivalent dose = radiation weighting factor x absorbed dose

Effective dose = tissue weighting factor x equivale... more
