In this paper x-ray mass attenuation coefficients of nickel were measured with precision between 0.2% and 0.5% for four characteristic wavelengths: copper and molybdenum K lines. The mass photoelectric absorption coefficients were determined by subtracting the calculated Rayleigh scattering from the total scattering and the values of measured attenuation coefficients. The values of the imaginary component of atomic scattering factor for x-ray in nickel were determined from the difference between the values of measured attenuation coefficients and theoretical calculations, it is shown that In the low energy at ω≪ω_e, and the high energy at ω≫ω_e, the imaginary component approximately is zero, and the electrons are so tightly bound to the atom. In the region ω ~ ω_e where the imaginary component of the scattering is dominate and the electron become highly absorbing. There was good agreement between the values of the imaginary component of atomic scattering factor has been found and the values has been calculated by using various model

By applying health risk assessment model, it is found that value of hazard quotient (HQ) of each element of non carcinogenic heavy metals is less than 1 for three exposure pathways (i.e. ingestion, dermal contact and inhilation, indicating no health hazards for both children and adults. It is also concluded that children are more susceptible for potential hazards than adults, as well as ingestion pathway is more serious than other exposure pathways. Cancer risk value of Cr in surface soil is the highest, indicating high potential carcinogenic hazards through inhilation of soil particles, while cancer risk value of both Co and Ni indicated moderate potential carcinogenic hazards, whereas cancer risk value of Pb was the lowest, suggesting no carcinogenic hazards through ingestion pathway.
