In the present work, investigated the study the effect of the beta particle backscattering count rate, using a strontium-90 source, with energy (0.6 Mev), radioactivity (62.5 KBq.). In addition the empirical relationship between the backscattering count rate and the thickness of target was investigated. The backscattering count rate increase with (due to) increasing the thickness of target and in other side with atomic number,
