The Kβ characteristic X-ray line for tungsten has a wavelength of 1.80×10−111.80×10−11 m. What is the difference in energy between the two energy levels that give rise to this line?


Expert Answer

Step 1

Given: wavelength = 1.80 × 10-11 m

Find: The energy difference between two energy levels

Step 2

To calculate energy difference, use the formula as: 

h = planck's constant = 6.63 × 10-34 J.s

c = speed of light = 3 × 108 m/s

wavelength = 1.80 × 10-11 m

Step 3

Substitute all the val...
