9/18-11/11/03 Mendon Muon
Run

Stage II Data Analysis:

- Using your Excel file
from the previous analysis activity, graph muon rate vs. pressure from
beginning of run until just before the effects of the large solar flare
are noticeable (around hour 965).
Include a linear trendline, equation, and r
^{2}value for this graph. - Adjust muon rate to
correct for variations in pressure.

To do this, click on a data cell in the column to
the right of your last column (probably k index). Click the ** Edit Formula** (

= muon rate + (101- pressure)x(rate
vs. pressure slope)

The pressure slope is found in the linear trendline equation. See formula tips below for help with
this.
