### Math Formulas

How is the variable kVp theory used to maintain exposure with varying part thickness? increase 2 kVp for each 1 cm increase in part size
How is the fixed kVp theory used to maintain exposure with varying part thickness? 2x or 1/2 mAs for each 4-5 cm change in part size
What is the 15% rule? To maintain exposure: Increase kVp 15% & 1/2 mAs Decrease kVp 15% & 2x mAs
What formula is used to maintain exposure at varying distances? Exposure Maintenance Formula: mAs1/mAs2=d1^2/d2^2
