Abstract : An approximate equation for the transmission of gamma rays through a slab of finite thickness is derived. This equation is an immediate generalization of Bethe's onedimensional equation. While Bethe's equation is valid only for the case of a slab in which the absorption coefficient of the gamma rays varies monotonely with energy, the equation discussed here is not so limited though it possesses other limitations.
