Abstract

Questionnaires were designed containing questions relating to 222Rn, to know the student’s awareness of the dangers of 222Rn gas. The questionnaire was distributed randomly to 30 students of the fourth stage of both sexes in the departments of the college of science. The survey shows that the 222Rn awareness of fourth-stage students for all departments of the college of science, Mustansiriyah university is scarce.
