Abstract  

A quantitative method for the analysis of -emitters in infinitely thin and thick samples was described in Part I. The calculation of errors in intensity, intensity ratio and activity concentration is discussed here in detail. Different definitions of detection sensitivity are compared and evaluated on the basis of the relative statistical error associated therewith. Dependence between the relative error of the net signal and the required measurement time is deduced and illustrated.
