Simple Cloud Chambers Using a Freezing Mixture of Ice and Cooking Salt
Yoshinaga, Kyohei; Kubota, Miki; Kamata, Masahiro
Physics Education, v50 n1 p23-27 Jan 2015
We have developed much simpler cloud chambers that use only ice and cooking salt instead of the dry ice or ice gel pack needed for the cloud chambers produced in our previous work. The observed alpha-ray particle tracks are as clear as those observed using our previous cloud chambers. The tracks can be observed continuously for about 20?min, and the preparation and operation are simple.
