  • The purpose of the"Alpha Please Leave Home" lab is to find the range of alpha particles and determine if the inverse square law applies.
  • In the "Penetrating Power" experiment, students demonstrate the interactions of alpha, beta, and gamma radiation with matter.
  • The purpose of the "Stop That Gamma" experiment is to find the range of gamma rays and determine if the inverse square law applies.
  • Try Patrick Gormley's online "Halflife of a Radioisotope" experiment.
