Listen to part of a lecture in an archaeology class.

 


 

 

  1. What is the lecture mainly about?
  • A. Misconceptions about muon detectors
  • B. An investigation of an Egyptian pyramid using a muon detector
  • C. The collaboration between physicists and archaeologists in the development of the muon detector
  • D. Benefits that muon detectors can provide to archaeologists

 

  1. What aspect of muons is most useful to archaeologists?
  • A. Their ability to carry information from outer space
  • B. Their ability to break down cosmic rays into smaller particles
  • C. Their ability to pass through solid matter
  • D. Their ability to change the color of some surfaces

 

  1. According to the professor, what information can a muon detector provide about an ancient structure?
  • A. The internal temperature of the structure
  • B. The location of rooms within the structure
  • C. The age of the structure
  • D. The materials used to build the structure

 

  1. Why does the professor discuss damage to archaeological sites?
  • A. To indicate a benefit of using muon detectors in archaeological research
  • B. To describe an accident with a muon detector during a pyramid excavation
  • C. To explain how muon detectors are useful in reconstructing damaged sites
  • D. To explain why muon detectors were not often used in the past

 

  1. In what ways are modern muon detectors different from muon detectors used in 1967?
  • A. Modern detectors are less expensive.
  • B. Modern detectors use less energy.
  • C. Modern detectors are not as large.
  • D. Modern detectors take less time to produce an image.
  • E. Modern detectors can scan in more than one direction.

 

  1. What is the professor’s opinion about the newer muon detectors?
  • A. She appreciates the help they provide despite the time they take to produce images.
  • B. She fears that many archaeologists will be unwilling to learn to use them.
  • C. She feels that they have greater potential in areas of science other than archaeology.
  • D. They provide more accurate information about the age of objects than older detectors did.
