Angular momentum in quantum mechanics as a group study topic
A largely practical approach to the teaching of angular momentum in quantum mechanics at the undergraduate level is described. In an intensive seven week period towards the end of their final year,… Expand
α-Particles from the Radioactive Disintegration of a Light Element
WHEN lithium is bombarded with deuterons, a radioactive substance is formed which has been found to emit (β-rays with energies up to 10.5 Mev.1. We have recently found that this radioactivity is… Expand
The half-life of 14O and the ft value of the superallowed Fermi decay
Abstract A series of experiments has been carried out to measure the half-life for 14 O decay, using different reactions and a variety of techniques, in two laboratories. Considerable care has been… Expand

The disintegration of nitrogen by slow neutrons
The disintegration of nitrogen by slow neutrons has been studied in photographic emulsions of different sensitivity, which enable an unambiguous distinction to be made between the emission of… Expand
Short-Range α-Particles from Oxygen, Nitrogen and Fluorine Bombarded with Protons
THE bombardment of fluorine by protons leads to the emission of astrong γ-radiation, for which the excitation curve shows well-defined resonances1. In a letter by Dee, Curran and Strothers2, in which… Expand
The ft value for the superallowed Fermi decay 38mK(β+)38Ar
Abstract The threshold energy for the reaction 35 Cl(α, n) 38m K has been measured to be 6674.8±3.2 keV and the Q -value for the reaction 35 Cl(α, p) 38 Ar to be 837.2±2.4 keV. From the measurements… Expand
