Physics - Scintillators

I'm doing a lab using a scintillator/PMT to perform gamma ray spectroscopy, I'm a little bit unsure on how the scintillator works- When a scintillator atom is impacted by a gamma ray, it produces a photon (or a n,umber of photons?). does the photon produced have an energy related to the energy of th...

Re: Are video games a waste of time? why or why not?

Video Games are a waste of your time if you are playing video games instead of doing something more worthwhile. Such as.. Heart surgery? Donating time at the homeless shelter? Solving World Hunger? You'll need to be more specific. Not really. What one finds worthwhile is, in the end, a personal dec...

Re: It's Volcano time again

Article By far the more substantive climatic effect from volcanoes results from the production of atmospheric haze. Large eruption columns inject ash particles and sulfur-rich gases into the troposphere and stratosphere and these clouds can circle the globe within weeks of the volcanic activity. Th...

Re: Google maps terrain view

Yes, but I thought it was in the same way us Brits use it. As in occasionally when it's talking about how tall a person is or whatever, but never actually use it as the standard, everywhere. We seem to be in between the two systems, not fully one and not fully the other. Edging towards metric these ...

Google maps terrain view

Something vaguely amusing I just saw. When you look at Google maps terrain view for the USA, they define altitude in feet. In the rest of the world it's in meters. This confused me for a while into thinking that the US was filled with gigantic mountains that, oddly enough, didn't actually look that ...

Re: Consenting adults?

Hmmm, I'm not so sure that would work. Say street fighting for example; if there was a police office nearby to a street fight, how would he know that it was consensual? And even if he did know, it would be a moral battle for him to just stand aside and let one guy potentially kill the other. I don't...
