The Mass attenuation coefficient is very important parameter used in Industry, agriculture, defense, food technology and also in forensic applications. Anti social elements are mixed elements like lacto powder, urea, sabudana powder etc. in milk samples. Their mixtures are very dangerous to human health. By using gamma ray the above parameter are studied for milk and urea admixture with different concentrations. The result shows the density of admixture milk sample at different concentrations V/s attenuation coefficients, the attenuation coefficients decreases exponentially with increasing the density. The result represented in the form of graph and other results are in progress. Exponential decay was observed. This validates the gamma absorption law.
