  2. Cathode rays are deflected by electric field and magnetic field.
  3. Cathode rays produce heat in metals when they fall on them.
  4. Cathode rays can pass through thin aluminum or gold foils without puncturing them.
  5. Cathode rays can produce physical and chemical change.
  6. Cathode rays travel in straight line with high velocity momentum and energy and cast shadow of objects placed ...
