Considering dead-time correction, determine the decay constant (λ) from your graph and calculate the half-life of the appropriate aluminum isotope.

Activated Aluminum Half-Life Measurement Lab Report Objective:In this laboratory you’ll be given a thin aluminum foil that has been activated in the OSU TRIGA Reactor. Your objective is to familiarize yourself with the laboratory equipment  and to determine the half-life of the radioactive isotope of aluminum using the activated foil.   Procedure: 1. Set up the […]
