The accelerated electrons are suddenly stopped by the target. According to Maxwell’s theory, wherever a charged particle is accelerated or decelerated, they emit radiation. This is called Bremsstrahlung or braking radiation.

When the whole of the energy of the electron is converted to radiation, one gets the maximum energy or wavelength minimum. If V is the potential difference applied, it is
