Could someone double check this for me?
Could someone double check my math on this?
I have a countertop of 6.97 square meters made of a stone that emits 30.20 Bq of Radon per day and I need to figure out how much the stone adds to the Radon level in the home in pico Curies per liter of air.
30.20 Bq x 27.02 (Bq to pCi conversion factor) = 816.004 pCi x 6.97 sq meters of countertop = 5,687.54 pCi of Radon emitted per day.
12' x 15' kitchen with 8' ceilings would be 12 x 15 x 8 = 1,440 cubic feet -351 cubic feet for cabinets and appliances= 1089 cubic feet of air present.
28.3 liters per cubic foot so 1089 cubic feet x 28.3 = 30,818.7 liters of air present in the room.
5,687.54 pCi of Radon mixed into 30,818.7 liters of air = 0.1845 pCi/liter increase.
Thanks for taking the time.
