An Introductory Scattering Experiment by Simulation
Merrill, John R.; Morrow, Richard A.
Amer J Phys, 38, 9, 1104-1107, Sep '70
Describes an introductory physics experiment concerned with scattering particles off various force centers. The experiment uses simulation techniques and a computer. The scattering is classical, and the student examines plots of computed particle trajectories. The results illustrate the concepts of differential corss-section, total cross-section, and effective potential. (LC)
