In this application concerning the function and design of an X-ray tube.
Electrons emitted by the glowing cathode are accelerated towards the anode. As the electrode beam impacts on the anode, the high kinetic energy of the electrons is converted into x-ray quanta. The spectrum produced consists of bremsstrahlung and characteristic radiation.
By means of a playcontrol, the animation can be stopped and moved fore- or backward whenever you want.
This application is suitable for the cooperation with interactive whiteboards and tablets.
