Learning Goals

  • To understand the relationship between amount of radioactive material and desintegrasjon rate.
  • To understand the relationship between count rate and desintegrasjon rate.
  • To understand the uncertainty in measured number of counts and be able to calculate the uncertainty in numbers derived from such numbers.
  • Be able to use a radioactivity detector.
  • To know and understand the basic principles for work with open radioactive sources.
  • Be able to conduct contamination checks.


This exercise consist of the following parts:
