The Monte Carlo code PENELOPE has been used to simulate different models of LINACS with the presence and absence of air and variation of radius of ring using PRIMO for medical applications. The patient model is selected as water phantoms and its dimension is 16.20*16.20*31.00 with bin size of 0.25 cm having source to phantoms surface distance (SSD) 100cm. For that Nominal energy is set at 6 MV with initial energy 5.900 MeV. The field geometry is set at 20*20 with parameter X1, X2, Y1, Y2 as 10 cm. Implication from the simulation shows that the effect of air is only in the Elekta model of LINACS. There is also a large variation in the energy due to change in radius of ring of LINACS
