Question

The electron beam in a colour TV is accelerated through 32 kV and then strikes the screen. What is the wavelength of the most energetic X-ray photon?

(Use Planck constant h = 6.63 × 10-34 Js= 4.14 × 10-15 eVs, speed of light c = 3 × 108 m/s.)

Solution

Given:-

Potential of the electron beam, V = 32 kV = 32 × 103 V

`"Energy", E = 32 xx 10^3  "eV"`

Wavelength of the X-ray photon (`lambda`) is given by

`lambda = (hc)/E`

Here,
h = Planck's constant
c = Speed of light

`therefore lambda = (hc)/E`

`⇒ lambda = (1242  "eVnm")/(32 xx 10^3)`

`⇒ lambda = 38.8 xx 10^-3  "nm"`

`⇒ lambda = 38.8  "pm"`

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
