How do X-rays interact w/ matter via the photoelectric effect?
Where an orbital electron is ejected from an atom due to energy gained from incident photon
How do X-rays interact w/ matter via Compton Scattering?
Where x-ray is scattered via interaction with an orbital electron
How do X-rays interact w/ matter via pair production?
Where-ray photon interacts with the nucleus of an atom and an electron and positron are produced
