Final Help with Experiment!

  1. Mar 25, 2010 #1
    Firstly, do gamma rays spread out evenly or do they spread in random directions?

    Secondly, how do I test the effect of gamma ray radiations intensity at different direction in a way comparable to the effect of light intensity on an LDR?

    Gamma rays do spread out evenly....because of their randomness (and laws of large numbers).
    For the second part of your question....are you joking.....because the type of experiment you outlined above would require an incredible amount of money and resources - you may even have to invent your own apparatus. And if you have them then there is plenty of stuff on the net concerning gamma detection.
