Shielding

  • Use detector to measure radiation at various distances from radioactive source; instead of varying distance use thin sheets of aluminum and vary thickness of barrier.
  • Detector and sources located in radioactive materials storage room. Thin sheets of aluminum in L35.

Radiation Cans

 

Radiation Cans Demo Picture

  • Cans radiate and absorb heat at different rates.
  • Fill cans with warm, or cool water of identical temperature. Monitor the temperature change with a thermometer, or with a Logger Pro temperature probe.
  • Located in L02, section C-3.
