- Homework Statement:
- The energy of the x-ray is 50 keV, how many photon has been absorbed?
- Relevant Equations:
I've tried to solve this by calculating the number of photons. I've done this by calculating the energy of one photon, taking h*c divided by lambda. h*c is 1240 eV*nm and lambda is 10 nm. This gives me 124 eV. I then divide the total energy by the energy of one photon, 50 keV/ 124 = 403 photons. Is this correct? And how do I get the number of absorbed photons?
