Wavelegth range of an X Ray
Most X-rays have a wavelength ranging from 0.01 to 10 nanometers
Frequency range of X Rays
corresponding to frequencies in the range 30 petahertz to 30 exahertz (3×1016 Hz to 3×1019 Hz)
X Ray Velocity in a Vacuum
X-rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation just like visible light. They travel at the same speed (299,792 km/s in a vacuum) as visible light. The only difference is that x-rays have a much higher frequency (~10^18 Hz) and hence a much shorter wavelength (~1 nm) than visible light.
