Ok, I'm given a formula for the cross section of the scattering and I've been told that the detector is a column of water of depth 10m. I need to find the probability of the scattering within the detector.
σ = E(in MeV) x 1.5x10-44 cm2
The Attempt at a Solution
I know the cross section is actually a probability in particle physics, but I just don't see how to use the depth of the detector.
A ratio, maybe?
