X-rays are part of the Electromagnetic (EM) Spectrum and are located between Ultravoilet (UV) rays and Gamma rays. They typically can have a wavelength of anywhere between 0.01 nm - 10 nm and can have varying energies. X-rays have clinical applications, such as the identification of pnuemonia in the lungs[1], and can be used in medical imaging known as radiography.
