Abstract:
We deduce the total path length of muons traversing a volume V of arbitrary shape in terms of the rate dR/d cos(theta), whose units are number/cm2/s, of muons incident on a horizontal surface at the location of the volume under consideration, where theta is the polar angle of the muon trajectory with respect to the vertical.
