Abstract. The gamma absorption coefficients are very important parameters widely used in Medicine, agriculture, science and technology, basic sciences and in research area. The mixture rule is developed by Chaudhari and Teli for determination of absorption coefficients of various salts by using various gamma ray energies and compared theoretical and experimental results with Hubbell's tables. By using this method, the gamma absorption coefficients of Polymers Poly(vinyl alcohol) studied at various concentrations by using various source at 0.39 MeV. The results are in good agreement.
