Question 23: NCERT Solutions for 12th Class Physics: Chapter 11-Dual Nature of Radiation and Matter
(a) An X-ray tube produces a continuous spectrum of radiation with its short wavelength end at 0.45 A. What is the maximum energy of a photon in the radiation?
(b) From your answer to (a), guess what order of accelerating voltage (for electrons) is required in such a tube ?
(a) Minimum wavelength corresponds to maximum energy photons.
(b) In order to emit photons from the surface of energy 27.6 keV, the incident electrons striking on surface should have higher energy i.e., of the order of 30 keV.
