Understanding Gamma Radiation

Understanding Gamma Radiation

Gamma Radiation There are  three main types of natural radioactivity.  Gamma radiation is one of the them. The other two types are in the form of particles, but gamma rays are in the form of waves. The natural production of this radiation takes place through gamma decay, a term used to describe the natural decay
