Product details

The behaviour of gamma radiation in a magnetic field with Cobra SMARTsense

Item no.: P7301069

  • Description
  • Scope of Supply


The behaviour of gamma rays in the magnetic field is investigated by comparing measurements with and without magnetic field. A lead plate is used to isolate other types of radiation.


  • Especially understandable and didactically prepared description of the experiment (relevance to everyday life, etc.) including protocol questions.
  • Future-oriented teaching: Integration into digital science lessons with tablets or smartphones.
  • Increased motivation of students by using the intuitive measureAPP.
  • Increased media competence.


The students study the deflection of gamma rays in a magnetic field by measuring the pulse rate with the Geiger-Müller counter tube for radiation through a magnetic field, as well as without a magnetic field.

Learning Objectives

With the help of the experiment, the students determine the behaviour of the gamma rays in the magnetic field.
