Velocity-range relation for fission fragments


In two recent notes(1,2) a number of features of the penetration of uranium fission fragments through matter as revealed by cloud-chamber photographs were discussed. In particular, it was pointed out that we have here to do with a velocity-range relation of a novel character which depends on the interplay between electron capture by the fragments over their entire range, and the ultimate stopping by nuclear collisions.
