Use the Digital Radiation Monitor to monitor alpha, beta, and gamma radiation for explorations in radiation statistics, measuring the rate of nuclear decay, and monitoring radon progeny.
The Digital Radiation Monitor consists of a Geiger-Mueller tube and a digital rate meter mounted in a small, rugged, plastic case. The unit is battery operated and can be used with or without an interface for measurement of alpha, beta, and gamma radiation. When used with an interface such as LabQuest, it can be used to study counting statistics, inverse-square relations, shielding effects, and other quantitative experiments. Without an interface, use the built-in counter and timer to measure count rates.
