I want to construct a table of results (minus the results for now) that is related to how the count rate on a geiger muller counter varies with distance with a radioactive isotope. I would appreciate some suggestions of table headings. Here are a few I have already come up with, any thing you think I could add?

**Distance/cm**

Count Rate (or activity)

Background Count

Corrected Count rate

Count Rate (or activity)

Background Count

Corrected Count rate

I would like to incorporate the inverse square law, but I am unsure how to do so. I want to measure the intensity or see how it varies. Would that just be [tex]\frac{1}{d^2}[/tex]

Thanks!
