Mean Lifetime Part 3: MINERvA

Students collect data from muons which decay in the MINERvA detector in the Fermilab NuMi beamline to understand particle decay and determine the muon lifetime.

Mean Lifetime Part 1: Dice

Rolling dice serves as the model for decaying particles.

Mean Lifetime Part 2: Cosmic Muons

Students learn how physicists measure muon lifetime.
