Abstract The mechanism of production of line radiation in a thick target differs from that of bremsstrahlung radiation. As a result the effective depths of formation of the two types of radiation, under identical conditions, are not the same. With relatively low voltage across the x-ray tube, the average change in the depth of production with voltage was found to be 300 A/kv for the continuum while the line data gave a value of 440 A/kv, in anode material having an atomic number of about 30. The dependence of the two quantities on the takeoff angle was also investigated. (auth)
