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.
