Question Scoring energy deposition of both mother and daughter volumes

Hello..

Just a quick one..

Consider that you have two square voxels where one is the daughter volume of the other volume (i.e. the mother volume).

Using a SteppingAction approach to scoring where the G4Track classes are being used to determine what volume the particle is in and score the energy that the particle deposits within that volume (either the mother volume or daughter volume).

If a particle is within the mother volume and also within the daughter volume will the sum of the energy deposited within the mother volume be: 1) The total energy deposited within the mother volume but not including that deposited within the daughter volume OR

2) The total energy deposited within the mother volume also including that deposited within the daughter volume?

Ive managed to confuse myself while trying to solve this problem...

Thanks in advance!!

Ben
