    • Abstract


      In this work, the direct method and the linear differential scattering method were used to detect the experimental effective atomic numbers of some potassium compounds ($\rm{KH_{2}PO_{4}, KNO_{3}, K_{2}S_{2}O_{8}, KOH, K_{2}HPO_{4}, K_{2}SO_{4}, KCl, KIO_{3}}$ and $\rm{KI}$). The experiment has been done by using $^{241}\rm{Am}$ radioactive source, a Si(Li) detector and an energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometer (EDXRFS). The experimental effective atomic numbers were compared with the effective atomic numbers obtained using WinXCom, FFAST, non-relativistic theory (NRT)and relativistic theory (RT).
