Use a Geiger-Müller tube to measure radiation intensity and to discover how radioactive particles react with various materials.
Students gain a new understanding of how to handle radioactive sources, how to measure radiation intensity, and how radioactive particles react with various materials. Students will:
Students gain experience conducting the following procedures:
Radioactive sources (alpha, beta, gamma) ~ 3
Shielding materials (paper, plastic, lead)
This experiment may require software and an interface for data collection.
