Symbol: | $\frac{S}{\rho}$ | ||

Definition: | the quotient of dE by the product of ρ and dl where dE is the energy lost by a charged particle of specified energy in traversing a path length dl in a material of density ρ$\frac{S}{\rho}=\frac{1}{\rho}\frac{\text{d}E}{\text{d}l}$ NOTE – For energies at which nuclear interaction can be neglected, the total mass stopping power is the sum of the collision mass stopping power and the radiative mass stopping power. | ||
