comment The number of mean free paths which a particle traverses is independent of the material traversed
Thank you for that, I had presumed that dx referred to an actual physical distance. For example I thought that the text implied that an electron would have the same number of mean free paths in 1cm of Lead as in 1cm in air. I did have a feeling though that dx had some kind of material dependency. Thanks for clarification
