Which detector did you use?

Background
Note down the values from the background counting you started the day before.
Counting number:
Counting time:
Counting speed:
Standard deviation:
Counting Efficiency
Do a one minute count on every shelf. Use these measurements to calculate the countingefficiency of the GMdetector in %, for ^{234m}Pa. The activity of the sample can be calculated from the amount of UO_{3} used.
