In this paper is presented a simple procedure for evaluating the absorption coefficient of aluminum (Z = 13) using a gamma-emitting nuclide, highlighting the characteristics and limits that characterize the measurement. Using the educational kit caen, is possible to investigate the full potential of the adopted method. The results obtained give great confidence in the instruments and the aim of this work is to provide the first tools for conducting a good spectroscopic analysis.
