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
Bundle of radiant energy Photon
Positively charged particle located in nucleus of atom Proton
Bundle of radiant energy Quanta
Energy contained in light rays Radiant energy
Electron orbital path and energy level Shell
Electromagnetic radiation beyond violet end of spectrum; short wavelengths Utraviolet rays
Area where all air has been removed Vacuum
Distance between two consecutive corresponding points on a wave Wavelength
