Two sources of radiation look identical. one source emits only alpha radiation the other only beta radiation. describe one way to find out which source emits the alpha radiation.you can assume a radiation detector and a counter are available. you may wish to draw a diagram to help you with your answer.

Place the counter next to each source. Move the counter further away. What would you expect to happen for alpha radiation, and what would you expect to happen for beta radiation?

Alpha radiation is heavier and slower, so is more easily blocked. It will get blocked by just a few cm of air...
