Abstract

This study is carried out to observe muons coming from the zenith direction at ground level using a muon telescope based on Geiger-Muller (GM) tubes. Measurements were made for 16 sampling days from November 2008 to January 2009; simultaneously outside and inside the Physics Building of Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia in Bangi (3.05° N, 101.68° E and 50 m asl), Malaysia. Daily sampling sessions of 30 minutes are sub-divided into six consecutive sub-sampling periods of five minutes and descriptive statistics is used to summarise the observed muon counts. Then, applying the inferential statistical methods of ANOVA and t-test indicate that the time variation of the muon count is not significant and the building roof does not significantly affect the muon count rate.
