Hi guys new to the forums and have a quick question about x-rays!

I'm guessing that if i know how far an x-ray is traveling in atmosphere from where it is generated before being absorbed (by using a simple x-ray detector) i should be able to calculate the approximate energy of that x-ray. It's a rather crude method and i just want to figure out the general energy, nothing specific. I don't know much about the subject and am curious what i would need to solve this. Thanks!

Mark
