The linear and mass attenuation coefficients of some inorganic compound samples have been measured employing NaI (TI) Scintillation detector. The electronic setup used is a NaI (TI) detector, which is coupled to MCA for 8k multichannel analyzer of the spectrum. A source of 137 Cs is used to get gamma rays in the energy range 662, 1173 keV. In the present study, the measured mass attenuation coefficient of Salicylic Acid, Citric acid, Cinnamic acid and Oxalic acid show a linear relation with the energy.
