X-Ray Energy Formula
The following equation is used to calculate the X-Ray Energy.
Ex = ec * V
- Where Ex is the X-Ray Energy (J)
- ec is the electron charge (1.60217662 * 10^-19 C)
- V is the accelerating voltage (volts)
To calculate the x-ray energy, multiply the acceleration voltage by the electron charge.
How to Calculate X-Ray Energy?
The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed in order to calculate the X-Ray Energy.
Example Problem #1:
- First, determine the electron charge (C). In this example, the electron charge (C) is measured to be 13.
- Next, determine the accelerating voltage (volts). For this problem, the accelerating voltage (volts) is calculated to be 5.
- Finally, calculate the X-Ray Energy using the formula above:
Ex = ec * V
Inserting the values from above and solving the equation with the imputed values gives:
Ex = 13 * 5 = 65 (J)
Example Problem #2:
Using the same process as example problem 1, we first define the needed variables outlined by the formula. In this case, the values are provide as:
electron charge (C) = 74
accelerating voltage (volts) = 3
Entering these values into the formula or calculator above gives us:
Ex = 74 * 3 = 222 (J)
