So I'm doing a(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Beta Spectroscopyof Sodium and apart from the Energy Spectrum, I'm intending touse the Kurie Plotto incorporate the Coulomb Correction Factor F(Z,p). But when I try plotting the data, my K(Z,p) has an incredibly huge number, on the order of 10^{20}and the linear graph looks weird. My Count Rate vs Energy selected graph is alright.

Here are my steps.

I am using the equation

-K(Z,p)= √{ N(p)/(p^{2}F(z,p))}

-F(Z,p), I'm using = {2πη}/{ 1 - e^{(-22πη)}}

where η = (Zq^{2})/( ħv)

- To calculate v, I'm usingv = BqR/m

- So to calculate p^{2}I'm using(mv)^{2 }= (BqR)^{2}

- Daughter nucleus of the decay is Ne.Z = 10.

- ForN(p), I'm using the number of counts measured over an interval of

4 minutes.

The rest are pretty much standard constants.

So for each corresponding count, there would be a corresponding energy selected.

And I will plot theK(Z,p)on the, vsy-axisEnergy (keV)on the.x-axis

Is there anything wrong that I'm doing with my Kurie Variable calculation?
