Gamma Ray experiment

  • #1
Hi, I need to make a project to demonstrate Gamma rays. I have cesium as a source to use and a geiger counter to detect gamma rays.

Ideas are welcome!

Put the Geiger counter by the cesium and take readings.

Then put other things between and build up a chart of which materials in what thicknesses absorb how many gamma rays.

thanks! my teacher already pretty well told me that and he has some materials too. I'm just trying to come up with something different but with something like Gamma rays its going to be pretty tough
