[1 mark] Oxygenated haemoglobin: Deoxygenated haemoglobin: (ii) Below you can see a typical structure of an oximeter consisting of a photo-emitter (an LED), that sends red and infrared radiation through the finger, and a photo-sensor that detects red and infrared radiation. photo-emitter emits red and infrared (i)

photo-detector Oximeters can be used to detect hypoxia in a patient. Hypoxia is a condition in which the body is deprived of adequate oxygen. Explain what frequencies will the photo-sensor primarily detect if a person suffers from hypoxia?

anode electrons

cathode

X-rays (a) The X-ray tube is switched on for 8 sec. In this time interval 2.4 1018 electrons reach the anode. Calculate the current between the anode and the cathode. The charge of an electron is equal to e = 1.6 1019 C. [2 marks]

(b)

The voltage between the cathode and anode accelerates the electrons. The kinetic energy of an electron as it leaves the anode is 3.2 1015J. Calculate the voltage needed to accelerate an electron from rest to this energy. [2 marks]

TEST 4 PART A * (c) The release of electrons from the cathode is called thermionic emission. The X-ray tube needs to contain a vacuum to increase the efficiency of X-ray production. Even so the collision of only about 1 in 100 electrons will produce an X-ray. Explain the above facts. Explain the term thermionic emission. Explain why the vacuum increases the efficiency of the X-ray tube. Explain the impact that the low efficiency of X-ray production has on the anode. Describe ways that are used to counter the impact.
