Bender, K. M.; Westphal, P. S.; Ramsier, R. D.
Physics Education, v43 n1 p95-99 Jan 2008
The purpose of this activity is to introduce students to concepts of short-range and long-range scattering, and engage them in using indirect measurements and probabilistic models. The activity uses simple and readily available apparatus, and can be adapted for use with secondary level students as well as those in general physics courses or teacher training programs at the college level. (Contains 4 figures and 2 tables.)
