# METHOD TO CALCULATE THE RADIOLOGICAL EQUIVALENCE

Now let's look at the method

Now let's look at the method

begin

Find the relevant criterion, i.e. liquid, solid, airborne

next

Find the multiplication factor,

Table 4, page 35

To rate this event, we need to multiply the amount released by the multiplication factor

next

We now need to determine the level:

Compare the result with the definitions we saw two pages earlier, i.e.

liquids > 10 TBq ^{99}Mo

solids > 1 TBq ^{137}Cs

airborne > few tens GBq ^{131}I

If the level of contamination exceeds the appropriate value, the rating for this criterion is Level 2. If it is less than this value, the rating based on this criterion is Level 0. Equally, even if it is 100 times the value, it is still Level 2.
