Abstract or Summary
  • Public concern has recently focused upon the presence of radioactive radon in homes. The Environmental Protection Agency and others have researched this health hazard. Radon gas is given off during typical household water uses such as showering, bathing, dishwashing, and clothes washing. However, few studies have been performed on radon released from laundry water. The main focus of this research project was to determine the amount of radon released from water into the air as a result of varying agitation times and degrees. The presence of detergent in water and its effect on radon release were also investigated. The results strongly supported the hypotheses which stated that radon released from water is affected by agitation degrees and by agitation times, and that an interaction exists between these two. The higher the degree of agitation and the longer the agitation time, the greater was the radon loss. The t-test analysis supported the hypothesis that added detergent will not cause additional radon to be released.
