The graph shows the relative intensity of X-rays in an X-ray spectrum of different X-ray photon energies. Which of the following mechanisms could result in the production of an X-ray spectrum with this shape due to an electron beam striking a target?
The diagram shows a Coolidge tube used for the production of X-rays. The potential difference and the potential difference . What is the maximum energy of X-rays that the tube can produce?
The diagram shows an atom in the target material used in a Coolidge tube that generates X-rays. An electron in the electron beam used in the tube could eject either an electron in the K-shell or an electron in the L-shell of the atom. Which of the following would result in the greatest energy X-ray photon being emitted from the atom?
