Question

Find the cutoff wavelength for the continuous X-rays coming from an X-ray tube operating at 30 kV.

(Use Planck constant h = 4.14 × 10-15 eVs, speed of light c = 3 × 108 m/s.)

Solution

Given:
Voltage of the X-ray tube, V = 30 kV
Cutoff wavelength for continuous X-rays (λ) is given by 

`λ = (hc)/(eV)`

Here , 

h = Planck's constant

V = Voltage of the X-ray tube

c = Speed of light 

`therefore lambda = (1242  "eV"-"nm")/(e xx 30 xx 10^3)`

⇒ `lambda = 414 xx 10^-4  "nm" = 41.4  "pm"`

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
