Consider the following differences between Gamma Rays and X rays:
- Gamma rays have shorter wavelengths than the X-rays
- Gamma rays are produced during nuclear decay by nuclei of atoms, whereas X-rays are produced by electrons
Which of the above statements is/are correct?
Both are correct statements
Both X-Rays and gamma rays refer to waves in the electromagnetic spectrum. While gamma rays are produced during nuclear decay by nuclei of atoms, X-rays are produced by electrons. Gamma rays have shorter wavelength than X- rays.
