This is Part II of a three-part problem dealing with atmospheric shielding. Students use the formula they derived in Part I to calculate the radiation dosage for radiation arriving from straight overhead and from the horizon. Students also calculate the zenith shielding from the surface of Mars. A one-page teacher guide accompanies the one-page assignment.
