Main Question or Discussion Point
Good morning all, I was just wondering the following question. When an electron is accelerated it emits electromagnetic radiation, depending on how much it is accelerated the energy varies so the frecuency does and the electromagnetic wave emitted would be of different colors or maybe even x-rays if the velocity is high enough. If this happens inside an x-ray machine, then why is it neccesary for the process of Bremstrahlung to occur? or K-shell emision? Would the electron alone be enough to generate x-rays or it is enough and the other fenomena occur only to generate more of them?
