Radiation absorbed dose converter is a tool that is used to convert between different units of measurement for radiation-absorbed dose.

## What is the radiation absorbed dose?

The radiation absorbed dose tells the amount of energy deposited in a material/tissue by ionizing radiation. It is a measure of the radiation's effect on matter. The absorbed dose is usually expressed in units of gray (Gy), which is equivalent to one joule of radiation energy absorbed per kilogram of tissue.

Different types of radiation, such as X-rays, gamma rays, and particles like alpha and beta particles, can have different effects and biological damage potentials. Therefore, the absorbed dose alone may not provide a complete picture of the potential harm caused by radiation.

When ionizing radiation interacts with matter, it transfers energy to the atoms and molecules in the material. This energy deposition can cause ionization and excitation of the atoms, leading to potential biological damage.
