9781332063888: Practical Measurements in Radio-Activity (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Practical Measurements in Radio-Activity

Although researches into the nature of radio activity have proved one of the most fruitful means of investigating atomic phenomena, a study of the methods employed for making radio active measurements has not yet come to be regarded as an essential part of a course of practical physics or chemistry. This is no doubt to some extent due to a belief that a practical course must necessarily involve the use of large and costly amounts of radio-active material. This is, however, not the case, for it is possible to illustrate most of the principles of radio-activity by experiments made with simple apparatus using quite small quantities of radio-active material. To show how this can be done has been the main object of describing a number of experiments, many of which have been designed by Professor Rutherford as part of the course of practical work in the Honours School of Physics in the Manchester University and as an intro ductory course for students intending to undertake original investigations in radio-activity. It is hoped that this work may do something towards giving the subject a more pro minent position in laboratory courses, and thus teach students the technique of one of the most fascinating branches of modern science.
