. A small metal ball is suspended in a uniform electric field with the help of an insulated thread. If high energy X-ray beam falls on the ball, the bal


Best Answer

When X-rays fall on the metal ball, some electrons emit from it due to photoelectric effect. The ball thus gets positively charged and on a positively charged ball an electrostatic force in the direction of electric field acts. Due to this force ball gets deflected in the direction of electric field.
