Frequency: The frequency of X-Rays range from 30 petahertz to 30 exahertz.
Wavelength: X-Rays wavelength ranges from 0.01 to 10 nanometers.
Practical Applications: X-Ray waves have many uses including X-ray machines which take photos of the inside of a patient’s body and X-Ray machines in the airport which are used to keep the passengers safe.
Negative Factors/Health Precautions: Exposure to X-Ray radiation as a fetus increases the chances of cancer by 40%. It also increases the chance of developing tumors by 50%.
Future Possibilities/ Interesting Facts: X-Ray waves were discovered when German scientist Wilhelm Conrad Roetgen was experimenting with vacuum tubes. They can be divided into hard X-Rays and soft X-Rays.
Location On The Spectrum: X-Ray waves are found second to last on the spectrum having the second shortest wavelength.
