What type of charge does x-rays have?

Nabin said:   9 years ago
Gamma rays have about 1,000 time more energy than X-rays. The difference between gamma rays and X-rays is in the frequency of the electromagnetic radiation.

Harjit said:   1 decade ago
Because gamma rays are neutral particle, it has low ionization power and high penetrating power.

Kriti said:   1 decade ago
Gamma rays are electrically neutral, which has low ionization power and as high penetrating power.

Raghavendra said:   1 decade ago
Because gamma rays have no charge and no mass, they are the most penetrating
