## Problem 1

- Calcualte an expression for $ \lambda_n^c $, the X-ray energy corrected for the dark current

$ \lambda_n^c=\lambda_n^b-\lambda_n^d $

- Calculate an expression for $ G_n $, the X-ray attenuation due to the object's presence

$ G_n = \frac{d\lambda_n^c}{dx}=-\mu (x,y_0+n * \Delta d)\lambda_n^c $

- Calculate an expression for $ \hat{P}_n $, an estimate of the integral intensity in terms of $ \lambda_n $, $ \lambda_n^b $, and $ \lambda_n^d $

$ \lambda_n = (\lambda_n^b-\lambda_n^d) e^{-\int_{0}^{x}\mu(t)dt}d)\lambda_n^c $

$ \hat{P}_n = \int_{0}^{x}\mu(t)dt= -log(\frac{\lambda_n}{\lambda_n^b-\lambda_n^d}) $
