Undergraduate Relativity Experiment
Higbie, J.
American Journal of Physics, 42, 8, 642-644, Aug 74
Describes a technique which enables the student to observe the relativistic behavior of electrons in a gamma ray detector and compare his results with the classical and relativistic predictions. Shows that it is possible to unambiguously determine the electron's momentum by knowing the Compton edge and photopeak energies of a gamma ray energy spectrum. (Author/SLH)
