# Absorbed dose definition

Absorbed dose means the energy imparted by ionizing radiation per unit mass of irradiated material. The units of absorbed dose are the gray (Gy) and the rad.
Absorbed dose means the energy imparted by ionizing radiation per unit mass of irradiated material. It is determined as the quotient of dE by dM, where dE is the mean energy imparted by ionizing radiation to matter of mass dM. The SI unit of absorbed dose is joule per kilogram and the special name of the unit of absorbed dose is the gray (Gy). The units of absorbed dose are the gray (Gy) and the rad.
Absorbed dose means the energy imparted by ionizing radiation per unit mass of irradiated material, expressed in units of the gray (Gy) or the rad.

## Examples of Absorbed dose in a sentence

• Absorbed dose is defined as the quantity of radiation energy absorbed per unit mass of tissue.”13 Absorbed dose is often referred to simply as “dose” in the radiation community.It’s considered to be the expression of damage as an amount of radiation does to material (typically the human body).

• Several different terms describe radiation dose.■ Absorbed dose: the amount of energy deposited per unit of mass.■ Equivalent dose: the absorbed dose adjusted for the relative biological effect of the type of radiation being measured.■ Committed dose: a dose that accounts for continuing exposure to internal contamination over long periods of time (such as 30 or more years).
