. What can the Geiger counter teach us?
Radiation is all around us in the form of background radiation which is created naturally in the rocks and earth, but which also occurs due to fallout from nuclear accidents. Specific radiation can be generated by radioactive isotopes, medical equipment and nuclear power sources. The Geiger counter uses an integral Geiger-Muller (GM) tube to detect radioactive activity. This is a great device to demonstrate the basic properties of radiation from KS4.
