Experimental Radioactivity Kit
This set enables a comprehensive range of experimental investigations into the characteristics and properties of radioactive emission to be carried out.
The kit consists of the following items:
• Radioactivity bench with accessories
• Set of absorbers
• Collimator, B8H27129
This experimental set will enable students to investigate the following:
1.To classify radioactive and non-radioactive solids.
2.To investigate the randomness of the radiation emitted by a Radium 226 source.
3.To compare the activity of emitters.
4.To reduce the intensity of radiation emitted by a source.
5.To separate the radiation emitted by a Radium 226 source.
6.To investigate the rate of decay of a radioactive source and to determine the half-life of that decay process.
7.To determine the range of alpha particles in the air.
8.To investigate the absorption of beta particles in a metal.
9.To investigate the attenuation of gamma rays in lead.
10.To investigate the relationship between the intensity of gamma rays at a point and the distance of that point from the source.
11.To monitor the distribution in space of the emission from a radiation source.
12.To investigate the deflection of a stream of beta particles in a magnetic field.
13.To investigate the back scattering of beta radiation by solids.
14.To gauge the thickness of aluminium foil by the transmission of beta particles.
15.To gauge the level of a liquid or powder by the transmission of beta particles.
