Determine the Resolving Time of a Geiger-Müller Tube

Richard Born at Northern Illinois University developed an experiment for determining the resolving time of a Geiger-Müller (G-M) tube using the Vernier Radiation Monitor.

By using split sources of radiation, students can determine the resolving time, T, by measuring the observed count rates of each source individually and then as a combined source.
