Outcomes

explain fluorescence and the generation of X-rays—this includes applying the relationships:

fluorescence
Fluorescence
  • Ways to emit light from atoms in a gas:
    • Heat it up
    • Apply an electric current
    • Hit it with light or other EMR
fluorescence1
Fluorescence
  • Fluorescence is the emission of light caused by the absorption of EMR
    • Wavelengths are equal or longer than incident EMR
    • Energy is less or equal to incident EMR
x rays
X-rays
  • X-rays are very high energy EMR that have high frequency and good penetrating ability
  • Frequency is between 1017 and 1019 Hz
penetrating ability of x rays
Penetrating ability of X-rays

X-rays penetration ability is proportional to density

dangers of x rays
Dangers of X-rays

They have the ability to ionise atoms

Can cause cancerous cell growth through damaging DNA

x ray production
X-ray production

X-rays are produced by fast moving electrons suddenly losing their kinetic energy, releasing photons (X-rays)
