Physics - Saturday Physics for Everyone

Radiation is a word that we encounter all of the time, in terminology such as “radioactivity”, “radiation therapy”, and “microwave radiation”. In this presentation, we will discuss what radiation is and different types of radiation. We will also describe where radiation comes from, how it can be dangerous, and ways that it can be beneficial.
