DAP unit converter

With this converter, the dose area product (DAP) can be converted into corresponding values expressed by other units. Use other tool for DAP to effective dose (mSv) conversion.

Note: use point in stead of comma as a decimal separator.


Input value
 

from  to 




Simple example with respect to unit conversions:
When converting from Gy.cm2 to µGy.m2 the following reasoning can be followed: 1 Gy = 1,000,000 (1 million) µGy; 1 cm2 = 0.0001 m2; this means that 1 Gy.cm2 = 1,000,000*0.0001 µGy.m2 = 100 µGy.m2.

Note that some conversions won't result in any change, for example: 1 cGy*cm2 = 1 µGy*m2.

DAP values can be translated into effective dose levels by multiplication using specific conversion factors. For this purpose it is important that DAP value and conversion factor match in terms of their units. The above DAP calculator can be used to obtain the desired unit with regard to the DAP value. 

Last but not least: practically DAP converter = KAP converter, see wikipedia.
