The inverse square law, in the context of electromagnetic radiation, states that whenever the distance is doubled between a source and an object, the object will be exposed to 4 times less radiation. This applies to everything on the electromagnetic spectrum. Understanding of this law is important in debunking woo and conspiracy theories relating to both ionizing and non-ionizing radiation.
