Distributions
in numbers of counts for random events at fixed
mean counts of approximately 1, 10, and 100 are
measured with a scintillation counter exposed
to a weak source of gamma rays. The results are
compared to the theoretical Poisson distributions
for the measuredmeans, and with the results of
Monte Carlo simulations of Poisson distributions
based on the use of a random number generator
