X-rays penetrate objects that are impenetrable for visible light. The absorption depends on the thickness and type of the material. This dependence is demonstrated in a qualitative manner on a fluorescent screen with the aid of various different absorption specimens.


  1. Observe the transmission of X-rays as a function of the material thickness.
  2. Determine how the atomic number of the elements in a material affects the transmission of X-rays.
