Energy, Momentum, and Mass

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

The Case of the Hidden Neutrino

Students use momentum conservation to examine the decay of top-antitop pairs to determine what is missing from the event.

Mean Lifetime Part 2: Cosmic Muons

Students learn how physicists measure muon lifetime.

Calculate the Top Quark Mass

Students use conservation laws and vector addition to calculate the top mass from event displays.

Calculate the Z Mass

Students use conservation laws and vector addition to calculate the Z mass from event displays.
