    Abstract: In this work, we have measured specific activity in ten motor oil samples for ten origins taken from the local markets by using high purity germanium (HPGe) detector. The results obtained have shown that the highest values of specific activity of (U-238, Th-232 and K-40) which was equal to (22.520 Bq/l, 26.640 Bq/l and 221.340 Bq/l), for [(Rasheed)... Show More
