In general, the higher the effective atomic number, the higher is
the inelastic differential crosssection. However, the ratio of the
inelastic to the elastic scattering crosssection is inversely
proportional to the effective atomic number, [1] Figure 4755b shows the angle at which inelastic and elastic differential crosssections are equal, as a function of the atomic number Z at the energy loss of 10 eV.
