UND Cosmic Ray Detector Abstract

The CRD group evaluated all detectors at the QuarkNet Center.  This included making sure the voltages were at their optimum setting, checking connections and looking for light leaks.  We now have 5 complete sets for classroom use. The group also conducted an elevation study at Jordan Science Hall to check for Cosmic Rate changes at different floors.  The last study we conducted was calculating the speed of a muon.  The teachers involved in this study were Jeff Chorny and Ben Mullins.  The two students involved were N. Lohr and M. Wheeler.
