What is the accelerating voltage of an x-ray tube that produces x rays with a shortest wavelength of 0.0103 nm?

To determine

The accelerating voltage of an x-ray tube that produces x rays with a shortest wavelength of 0.0103 nm.

Explanation

Given info:

  c=3.00×108 ms

  h=6.63×1034 Js

  λ=0.0103×109 m

Calculation:

Substituting the given values of joule in term of electron volt, we get

  1J=11.6×1019 eV

Energy of photon in term of frequency and Planck's constant, we get

  E=hcλ  

Substituting the values of velocity of light and Planck's constant, we get

  E(6.63×1034 J.s)(3×108 ms)0
