FIT Week of 6/10 Report
What did you do this week?:
This week my group and I started organizing our projects. Each of us chose a "small project" to work on in the mornings, mine is a study on the correlation of atmospheric pressure and muon counts. Then we decided to put together a "large project" on the affect of a plasma ball on muon counts to work on in the afternoons.
Why did you do that?:
We did this so we would be able to cover an array of potential effects on muon counts in the time we have. It allow us to not only compare our data but to create individual experimentation.
What are you doing next?:
Next, we will be building a faraday cage for our plasma ball experiment and putting together that experiment. I will also continue taking counts in the mornings so that I can put together nough data for my pressure experiment.
Why are you doing that?:
I am doing this so that I can put together an experiment with a solid amount of data to support it. We are also building the Faraday cage to see if the plasma ball emits muons.
