    hi All

    can someone help me , how can I find the energy and the wavelength of the K-alpha x-rays of aluminum ,please ?:frown:

    I hope someone replys soooon

    Indeed it is. The yellow book is sort of a minibible for everyone working with x-rays.

    Do we can apply this equation to estimate the x-ray energy for specific elements?

    10.2 ev (Z-1)2

    Can we apply this equation in order to calculate the x-ray emission for each element?

    10.2eV (Z-1)power of two
