Does having your phone around you make your body physically weak due to radiation? What I want to achieve out of this project was to figure out whether devices that people cherish so much can be hazardous. Also because I know that almost everyone has a cell phone and should be aware of this. I was worried about it due to the radiation. Growing up I would get x-rays and while getting them I would put this pad on my body and people had to leave the room while I got them. I would ask the doctor about why all of this needs to be done and they would tell me because of radiation. Some key points of this paper will cover how I will research about radiation, does a phone carry enough radiation to harm anyone, and how do you figure how something is heavily radiated.
Words to know:
Radiation- a process in which energetic particles or energetic waves travel through a vacuum or through matter-containing media that is not required for their propagation.
X-rays-are electromagnetic waves with a wavelength less than about 10-9 m (greater than 3x1017 Hz and 1,240 eV).
Gamma radiation -consists of photons with a wavelength less than 3x10,-11 meters (greater than 1019 Hz and 41.4 keV).
Cosmic Rays- are very high-energy particles, mainly originating outside the Solar System. They may produce showers of secondary particles that penetrate and impact the Earth's atmosphere and sometimes even reach the surface.
Some projects have been done in the past that is similar to mine. One project was conducted to determine if cell phones radiate enough energy to increase the temperature of water in test tubes. Also other people I have seen on the internet doing things related to this project and I feel as though they never touched on how the radiation can affect people. Too much radiation can be bad for your body. But can radiation physically affect your body.
Someone once shown me this interesting thing with phones and I’m not quite sure how true it is but it...
