The transmission factor
To answer question 3, refer to Figure S-3 in the Supplemental Booklet.
Personnel must enter a fallout area at H + 3 hours when the H + 1 dose rate is 100 cGyph. How
many hours can the personnel remain in the area without exposed personnel receiving more than
30 cGy of radiation?
