Making Tracks II

bubble chanber

Students analyze tracks in a bubble chamber.

In Making Tracks I, students look at cloud chambers to see particle tracks appear and disappear before their eyes. Then, in Making Tracks II, they examine bubble chamber events to discover the behaviors and properties of particles. (The bubble chamber portion is based on the teacher materials for the PBS Nova program, The Elegant Universe: Einstein’s Dream.)
