The linear and mass attenuation coefficient plays an important role in
agriculture, industry, science & technology, basic quality, medicines and forensics etc.
Milk contains considerable amounts of constituents. For healthy nation, we need
quality of food & milk. However, some antisocial elements have been adding some
adulterants like water, urea, lactose powder etc. in milk sample. In the present work,
we measured the linear and mass attenuation coefficient of adulterate milk sample with
urea by using gamma source Na-22 at energy 511 keV and 1280 keV. The
experimental values are in good arrangement and then validate absorption low.
