Question
If everyone in Australia received an extra 0.05 mSv per year of radiation, what would be the increase in the number of cancer deaths per year? (Assume that time had elapsed for the effects to become apparent.) Assume that there are $200\times 10^{-4}$ deaths per Sv of radiation per year. What percent of the actual number of cancer deaths recorded is this?
This represents an increase of 0.05% above the actual number of cancer deaths per year in Australia.
