ABR Practice Exam Question 3 – Time Error

August 15, 2009 · Written by MDPhysics.com · mdphysicsblog@gmail.com

To measure Time Error for a therapy machine (Co-60), a physicist took two different output measurements at two different time intervals. The result is listed below:

minute Exposure
T1 = 1 R1 = 100
T2 = 2 R2 = 201

What is the time error for this machine?

1- 0.59 seconds
2- 1 seconds
3- 0.29 seconds
4- 1.18 seconds
5- Cannot be determined from the data

Note: Co-60 machines may be out of the picture, but there may be a question on C0-60 machines on the exam. Although Time Error can be applicable to all therapy machines, it’s more applicable to Co machines.
