a) X-ray technologists are very familiar with how x-rays are formed. X-ray machines build up an electric potential, or potential difference between two pieces of the machine. One end of this machine is a wire which when heated, releases electrons. The other end, a receiving end, attracts these electrons via the potential difference. When the button is pressed on the x-ray machine, these electrons fly towards the highly ...
