Radiographic Theory and Equipment

A positively charged electrode that acts as a target for the electron from the cathode Anode
Basic part of matter consisting of a nucleus and surrounding cloud of electrons Atom
Number of protons in an atom's nucleus Atomic number
Negatively charged electrode Cathode
Method of transporting erergy through space, distinguished by wavelength, frequency and energy Electromagnetic radiation
Electromagnetic radiation grouped according to wavelength and frequency Electromagnetic spectrum
Negatively charged particle that travels around the nucleus Electron
Process when an electron is moved to a higher energy level in the atom Excitation
Ability of a substance to emit visible light Fluorescence
Number of cycles of wave that pass a stationary point in a second Frequency
Electromagnetic radiation emitted from the nucleus of radioactive substances Gamma Rays
Electromagnetic radiation, beyond red end of the visible spectrum, characterized by long wavelengths Infrared Rays
Process where outer electron is removed from atom so atom gets positively charged Ionization
Neutral particle in the nucleus of atom Neutron

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
