Bremsstrahlung radiation means?
"braking radiation" produced by slowing of incident electrons
What is needed for xray production?
source of electrons
acceleration of electrons
deceleration of electrons
What two interactions are needed to create xray photons?
Bremsstrahlung interaction occurs between?
nucleus of an atom
Incident electrons that travel closer to the nucleus will produce _____ energy photons?
Nucleus has a charge of?
Outtershell electrons have a charge of?
Bremmstrahlung photon carries an energy _____ to or ____ than the incident electron?
What is the innermost shell of all atoms?
What shell has the highest binding energy?
Characteristic radiation means?
Characteristic radiation requires how much binding energy?
Which interaction is an incident electron interacts with an inner shell electron, kshell electron is ejected from its orbital position and an outter shell electron moves in to fill the space?
Binding energy closest to the nucleus is ____?
