The contribution of different components to the total error in measuring the effective atomic number of the substance of a homogeneous test object is assessed using the dual-energy method at X-ray energies of up to 200 keV. It is shown that the maximum contribution to the error in measurements of the effective atomic number is made by deviations of the maximum energies in X-ray spectra.
