The Only Radiation Units You Need to Know




In order to have a meaningful conversation about the dangers of radiation exposure, it’s important to be clear about just how much radiation we are dealing with. Unfortunately, the units we use are kind of a mess… but SciShow is here with the only two you need to know. Hosted by: Michael Aranda SciShow has a spinoff podcast! It's called SciShow Tangents.
