Explain why characteristic x rays are the most energetic in the EM emission spectrum of a given element.

To determine

The reason why characteristic x-rays are more energetic in the EM emission spectrum of a given element?

Explanation

Introduction:

A characteristic x-ray is defined as the electromagnetic radiation that is emitted by an atom when an inner-shell vacancy is filled. These x-ray radiations are emitted by atom when electrons jump from higher energy state to lower energy state.

Calculation:

When electron moves from energy staten=3 ton=1 , x-ray radiations are emitted
