3-D Spreadsheet Simulation of a Modern Particle Detector
Scott, Alan J.
Physics Education, v39 n1 p91-95 Jan 2004
A spreadsheet simulation of a modern particle detector has been developed and can be readily used as an instructional tool in the physics classroom. The spreadsheet creates a three-dimensional model that can be rotated and helical trajectories can be highlighted. An associated student worksheet is also presented.
