X-rays are a type of radiation that is found around the 10-8 m to 10-12 m wavelength of the electromagnetic spectrum. Its corresponding frequency in Hz is around 1016s-1 to 1020s-1.
Light travels at a speed of 2.998×108 m/s in a vacuum.
Would radiation with a wavelength 0.82 nm or a frequency of 6.5×1011 s-1 be detected by an X-ray detector?
