How Speedy are These Muons?

In this activity, students use authentic detector data to apply simple 1D kinematics (v=d/t), interpret graphical data, and evaluate measurement uncertainties.

Energy, Momentum, and Mass

Students examine data to find how energy, momentum, and mass are related.

What Heisenberg Knew

Heisenberg knew that, at the quantum level, we cannot know everything, at least not all at once. Students explore uncertainties in measurements of complimentary variables to find this out for themselves.

Making it ‘Round the Bend - Quantitative

Students measure the effects of electric and magnetic fields on particles.
