# Frequency and Energy of Photons

Consider an x-ray machine with a step-up transformer consisting of a primary coil of 100 turns and a secondary one with 50000 turns. If the voltage applied across the primary coil is 100 volts, and the minimum wavelength of a bremsstrahlung photon emitted by the x-ray tube, what is the frequency and energy of the photon?

#### Solution Preview

This is easy to calculate: secondary turns / primary turns is directly proportionate to the step-up in voltage:

50000 / 100 = ...

#### Solution Summary

This solution provides steps to determine the frequency an energy of the photon.
