Nuclide identification exercise


Have a go!

In this exercise, the nuclides, energies and sources have been scrambled.  You have to match up the nuclide to its source and gamma ray energy.

  • First, select a nuclide by clicking one of the pink boxes.  The selected row will be highlighted.
  • Now select the energy value from the second column which should correspond to that nuclide.  (This value will be copied into the selected row).
  • Now click on the corresponding source in the third column.
  • Repeat for all the nuclides.
  • Your current progress is given at the bottom.
