Compton scattering experiment
In a Compton scattering experiment, an x-ray photon scatters through an angle of 17.0° from a free electron that is initially at rest. The electron recoils with a speed of 1,640 km/s.
(a) Calculate the wavelength of the incident photon.
(b) Calculate the angle through which the electron scatters.
