Well, in essence, they're equivalent. But you're probably comparing apples to oranges here – depending on your detector. The error in your measurement will almost certainly be determined by statistical noise. Depending on the size of your detector (and its orientation), you might get 10 muons in far less than 10 minutes, meaning you could improve your ...
