Show that a conventional x-ray generator is incapable of generating x-rays of wavelength as low as 10-11m. Do this by determining the identity of the target (in atomic number, Z) which would be needed to generate such x-rays.

99. ## Chemistry

How many drops (1 drop=0.05mL) of 0.20M KI must we add to 100.0 mL of 0.010M Pb(NO3)2 to get a precipitate of lead iodide to start. Ksp of PbI2=7.1e-9. Answer=9 drops. Please show steps.

100. ## Please help me with M1 kinematics!

A particle p is initially at the point (2, 6) in relation to an origin O, and is moving with velocity (3i + j) m/s. It has a constant acceleration (16i + 24j)m/s^2. Show that after 2 seconds it is moving directly away from O and find its speed at that time
