About the book
A PRACTICAL APPROACH TO NUCLEAR PHYSICS contains preliminary Nuclear Physics experiments and advanced level experiments for the students. This book is segregated in four categories, viz., Familiarization experiments, Preliminary experiments, Research level experiments and Accelerator based experiments. The general theory of each experiment is briefly explained in the beginning, with required equations. Details about the components of the experimental setup are provided. The actual experimental procedure including setting up of the experimental arrangement, the data collection and data analysis is explained in detail. This book has been written with a view to cater students of Nuclear Physics courses of under graduate, post graduate and research scholars.
• 104 experiments are described in the book
• 220 illustrations explain the basic theory
• 108 tables present the formats for recording the experimentally observed data
• Details about the components of the experimental setup are provided
• Thirteen appendices provide additional explanations of concepts including relevant expressions
