BackForward Variable: Alpha particles integral directional flux

Definition
Full name Alpha particles integral directional flux
Definition An alpha particle has positive charge and consists of two protons and two neutrons (the nucleus of a helium atom). Flux is the rate of flow through a reference surface, measured in particles per unit area.The directional flux is the flux limited to a certain solid angle as a function of the direction (pitch angle).
Measuring Units particles·(cm2 s sr)-1 Uncertainty Units
