I came across this question in my text book, it says:
What will happen to the x-rays if we change the element of the target in Coolidge tube by another one with a higher atomic number?
I believe that the characteristic spectrum will have a shorter wavelength, but I don't know whether the bremsstrahlung will be affected or not? And if the bremmstrahlung will undergo a change how would be this? (Note: my book says the bremsstrahlung is affected by the voltage between the cathode and the anode and didn't mention anything about the element of the target material).
