Questions for the Students
1. What are the sources of errors?
2. Highlight the potential problems of using 90
Sr for this experiment.
How to do calculations or other important aspects for the theory that is not directly related to exercise.
- A lab coat, gloves and safety spectacles must be worn. 35S is a soft beta emitter which means that it is not readily detected. When checking the bench, hands, lab coat, etc for contamination it is necessary to use a sensitive instrument.
- DO NOT dispose of any liquid or solid waste down sinks or in waste bins. Place in the waste buckets provided.
