Nuclear radiation is highly beneficial in controlled way. On the other hand, it has shown severe damaging effects on human health when our body is directly exposed to it. To prevent its exposure or overdose several dosimeters have been synthesized with different performances. In this research work, we prepared Ceric sulfate chemical dosimeter from three different water samples of TDS value 0.00ppm, 500pm and 900ppm. These dosimeter samples were then irradiated by Cs-137 gamma radiation source at different dose rates 100Gy, 200Gy and 300Gy. Gamma radiation effect in these samples was studied for different concentrations of salt. Variations in the absorbance of dose rate verses time was plotted and measured spectrophotometricaly at 320nm after the interval of 24 hours respectively.
