The energy of the em waves is of the order of 15 ke V. To which part of the spectrum does it belong ?

  • Option 1)

    Infra - red rays

  • Option 2)

    Ultraviolet rays

  • Option 3)

Answers (1)

As we learnt in

X Rays -

Frequency Range 3 	imes 10^{17} Hz to 3 	imes 10^{19} Hz

- wherein

Wavelength Range 0.1 A^{o} to 100 A^{o}

 

 

 

The wavelength corresponding to 15KeV

\lambda =\frac{12400}{15KeV}\AA=\frac{12.40}{15}\AA=0.83\AA

This belong to X ray region of EM wave.
