 DoseEquivalentMeasure is a kind of FunctionQuantity FunctionQuantity documentation A FunctionQuantity is a Function that maps from one or more instances of ConstantQuantity to another instance of ConstantQuantity. For example, the velocity of a particle would be represented by a FunctionQuantity mapping values of time (which are ConstantQuantities) to values of distance (also ConstantQuantities). Note that all instances of FunctionQuantity are Functions with a fixed arity. Note too that all elements of the range of a FunctionQuantity have the same physical dimension as the FunctionQuantity itself Function is first domain of AssignmentFn is first domain of closedOn is first domain of range is first domain of rangeSubclass PhysicalQuantity is partitioned into ConstantQuantity, FunctionQuantity Relation is second domain of subrelation Quantity is second domain of AdditionFn is second domain of DivisionFn is second domain of greaterThan is second domain of greaterThanOrEqualTo is second domain of lessThan is second domain of lessThanOrEqualTo is second domain of MaxFn is second domain of MinFn is second domain of MultiplicationFn is second domain of RemainderFn is second domain of SubtractionFn Class has axiom `(<=> (instance ?CLASS Class) (subclass ?CLASS Entity))` has axiom `(forall (?INT) (domain disjointDecomposition ?INT Class))` has axiom `(forall (?INT) (domain exhaustiveDecomposition ?INT Class))` is third domain of domain is third domain of domainSubclass Abstract has axiom `(<=> (instance ?ABS Abstract) (not (exists (?POINT) (or (located ?ABS ?POINT) (existant ?ABS ?POINT)))))` is disjoint from Physical Kinds of DoseEquivalentMeasure :

• Sievert (3 facts) - SI DoseEquivalentMeasure. Symbol: Sv. It is a unit of biologic dose of ionizing radiation. The Sievert makes it possible to normalize doses of different types of radiation. It takes into account the relative biologic effectiveness of ionizing radiation, since each form of such radiation--e.g., X rays, gamma rays, neutrons-- has a slightly different effect on living tissue for a given absorbed dose. The dose equivalent of a given type of radiation (in Sievert) is the dose of the radiation in Gray multiplied by a quality factor that is based on the relative biologic effectiveness of the radiation. Accordingly, one Sievert is generally defined as the amount of radiation roughly equivalent in biologic effectiveness to one Gray of gamma radiation. Sievert = J/kg = m^2*s^(-2) Next FunctionQuantityElectricConductanceMeasure    UpFunctionQuantity    Previous FunctionQuantityDensityMeasure
