ABSTRACT
The role of three factors on the level of nonionizing radiation is treated in this project: that of 1) the distance of the exposed body from the source, 2) the power of the source device and 3) the frequency of the source. The important factor of time, as well as other factors, are not at all ignored in this manuscript. In this work I emphasise the rules of the relationship with this necessary contaminant, and that exposures towards it should be avoided as far as possible.
