Question

# Find the(a) maximum frequency(b) Minimum wavelength of X-rays produced by 30 kV electrons.

Solution

## (a). Potential of the electrons, $$V = 30 kV = 3 × 10^4 V$$Hence, energy of the electrons, $$E = 3 × 104 eV$$Where,e = Charge on an electron = $$1.6 × 10^{−19} C$$Maximum frequency produced by the X-rays is $$\nu$$The energy of the electrons is given by the relation is $$E=h\nu$$Where,h = Planck’s constant = $$6.626 × 10^{−34}Js$$ $$\nu=E/h=7.24\times 10^{18}Hz$$(b). Energy of a electron, $$E=30\times 10^3eV$$Let Maximum frequency produced by the X-rays be $$\nu$$$$\nu=E/h=1.6\times 10^{-19}\times 3\times 10^4/6.626\times 10^{-34}=7.24\times 10^{18}Hz$$ where $$h$$ is the planck's constant.The minimum wavelength produced by the X-rays is given as-$$\lambda=c/\nu=0.0414nm$$PhysicsNCERTStandard XII
