Which detector did you use?
Contents
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.

Assessment of the Results
Write down the given measurements and calculate how many % of the countings that are outside of the intervals <NS_{N},N+S_{N} and <N2S_{N},N+2S_{N}>:




Is there, in your opinion, to many single measurements outside of the given areas? Give a answer based on statistical normal distribution.
