A classic piece of physics apparatus designed for use with the traditional range of radioactive sources (eg. SEA49578, SEA49589 & SEA49591). Comprising of an aluminium extrusion bench with graduated scale, set of radiation absorbers and radiation collimator.

This set allows students to investigate the nature of radiation including:

  • The classification of different materals
  • The randomness of emitted radiation
  • Rates of decay (including half lives)
  • The range of Alpha radiation in air
  • The effectiveness of materials as Beta radiation shields
  • The penetration of Gamma radiation.
  • Beta radiation scattering
