## Özet

The gamma-ray mass attenuation coe&#64259;cients of various absorber materials such as Ag, Al, Au, Bakelite, Cu, Fe, Pb, Plexiglas, Si, Sn, water, and Zn were determined theoretically at di&#64256;erent gamma-ray energies and di&#64256;erent absorber thicknesses in order to investigate how the number of gamma photons and their energies a&#64256;ect the calculation of mass attenuation coe&#64259;cients of the absorbers since no study such a comprehensive work here was encountered. For this purpose,the FLUKA Monte Carlo (MC) and XCOM programs were used. Calculated coe&#64259;cients were compared to the literature values and found to agree well with them. The FLUKA MC program was successful in the calculation of gamma-ray mass attenuation coe&#64259;cients of materials as was XCOM. The coe&#64259;cient results were a&#64256;ected by the number of incident gamma photons in the calculation, and a high incident photon number was suggested.
