Why does the energy of characteristic x rays become increasingly greater for heavier atoms?

To determine

The reason why does the energy characteristics x rays become increasingly greater for heavier atoms?

Explanation

Given Data:

Given that observers at a safe distance from an atmospheric test of a nuclear bomb feels its heat but receive none of its copious x rays

Formula Used:

The energy characteristics x-rays are given as

E=Z2n2Eo

WhereZ= Atomic Number

Eo= Energy at the ground state

n=
