Maximizing Recorded Events

In the first several activities you used a variety of devices to detect cosmic rays and examine a number of their properties.

In Activity 5 you will experiment to see if you can configure a detector to maximize the number of cosmic ray detections.

What detector arrangement yields the most cosmic ray detections?
What arrangement yields the least detections?

Do this:
Write the lab title and the investigation questions into your lab notebook unless a handout is provided.
