Main Question or Discussion Point

is any one aware of a Bethe-Bloch calculator for the web? I have a plastic scintillator 1 in thick and am trying to estimate energy loss of cosmic ray produced muons. Thanks

NIST tables are probably the best source, but if your energy loss in the material is significant you might want to use them in small steps - that is probably what the calculator does.
An even more refined approach would be to take the energy loss distribution into account in small steps of the length as the energy loss is not linear.
