An Experimental Investigation 12C(p,p)12C Reaction with an Open Air Van de Graaff
The purpose of this project is to attempt an experimental verification of Ernest Rutherford's differential cross section equation with elastically scattered protons. This is obviously not the height of originality, but ...
Determination of Sound Velocities in Liquids Using Light Diffraction of Ultrasonic Waves
Previous to the writing of this paper, Paul A. McIntosh, a 1964 Kalamazoo College graduate, examined diffraction of light by ultrasonic waves. More specifically, he derived the equation for the wave1ength of sound in ...
An Experimental Investigation of Spectral Lines of Helium
This project involves the optics of some aspects of the concave grating spectrograph and the structure of the helium atom in attempting to account for its spectrum. Since my knowledge of the subject is severely limited, ...
Speed Determinations of Low Amplitude Shock Waves in a Shock Tube
The purpose of this study was to create shock waves with amplitudes of about 5 psi and to measure both shock speed and pressure profile in an air-filled tube. Rankine - Hugoniot theory predicts that a shock wave travels ...
Propagation of a Plane, Small-Signal, Sinusoidal Sound Wave in a Viscous Mediuml
This paper presents a solution to a previously unsolved mathematical problem which arises in hydrodynamics.
Laser Operation and Related Optical Phenomena
Measurement of Sound Pulse Scattering from Narrow Plates with a High-Frequency Electrostatic Microphone
The recent development of wide-band electrostatic microphones, with relatively flat response extending to one-half megacycle per second, has produced a tool with valuable research capabilities in the field of acoustics. ...
An Estimate of the Earth's Age from Therman Considerations, Assuming Initial Conditions
Geochronology can tell us much about cosmology, but it can be no better than its data. Other methods of dating the Earth exist, but all are subject to error of one form or another. Calculation of the Earth's age from ...
Zeeman Quadrupole Studies in HgCl2 and NaClO3 Using and Induction Spectrometer
The purpose of this work was to determine a method of measuring the asymmetry parameter of the electric field gradient at the nuclear site in powdered samples. The work was restricted to nuclei having a spin of 3/2. The ...
