Since the Coloradon is 10 times more effective biologically than X- rays, it is therefore likely a high LET form of radiation. 9. (5 points) List five forms of electromagnetic radiation, ordering them according to their increasing energies from lowest to highest, and circle if they are ionizing (IR) or not (Non- IR): lowest energy 1. _____Radio_________________________, IR or non- IR 2. _____Visible light__________________, IR or non- IR ê༎ 3. _____UV light_______________________, IR or non- IR 4. _____X- rays_________________________, IR or non- IR highest energy 5. _____Gamma- rays__________________, IR or non- IR 10.
