Emission or absorption spectrum

  1. Nov 9, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    X rays give continuous spectrum and line spectrum. Whether these spectrums are emission or absorption spectrum?

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution
    I think it is emission spectrum, because there is no absorbing material. Still, i need confirmation from experts of this forum.Thanks in advance

    When I read your original post, it makes me think that the two types of spectrum - continuous and line - represent examples of each of the situations, emission and absorption, and you are being asked which one is which.
    Just a thought.
