please can u explain in detail why canal rays charge to mass ratio is dependent on nature of gas while it is not so with cathode rays

Anode rays (or canal rays) are beams of positive ions that are created by certain types of gas discharge tubes. These rays are beams of particles moving in a direction opposite to the "cathode rays," which are streams ofelectrons which move toward the anode. So, the charge/mass ratio is dependent upon the gas used.
