A wide gap streamer chamber has been designed and constructed. Its performance in various modes has been investigated. It is shown that an angular accuracy of 1.5 m rad can be achieved for a 20 centimetre track. The chamber has been applied to the study of multiple scattering of 100 Mev muons in one inch of lead. A large departure from theory has been observed, and the analysis has indicated a second narrow component of the distribution of the particles plotted against the projected angles of scattering. The chamber has been modified to study low energy particles.
