The diffusion in the ground of a radioactive tracer gas, used for locating leaks in buried pipes, has been calculated, and the results are presented in the form of graphs. It is shown how the information can be used to obtain the amount of radioactivity needed in a test for both beta‐emitters (C‐14 in carbon monoxide) and gamma‐emitters (Br‐82 in methyl bromide).
