Title Unattached radon decay products in mine air.
Bibliographic information Feb. 1975, Vol.28, No.2, p.158-161. 2 ref.
Abstract Critical study of an earlier report (Raghavayya and Jones) that the values of f (unattached activity/total activity) for RaB (Pb-214) generally exceeded those for RaA (Po-218) while the values for RaC (Bi-214) were about the same as for RaA. Arguments in favour of a method of obtaining a more reasonable estimate.
