Homework Help: Linear energy calibration for Co60

  1. Sep 25, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The data obtained in the experiment is in the graph
    http://img213.imageshack.us/f/energycalibration.png/

    My teacher says that do a linear energy calibration for photopeaks.


    3. The attempt at a solution
    A photopeak seems to be a peak caused by the emission of photons only.
    My attempt is in the image. I assume that the two last peaks are photopeaks.

    How would you do the linear energy calibration for the photopeaks of Co60?
