Homework Help: Physics -Compton Scattering

Posted by Christina on Wednesday, April 23, 2008 at 11:36pm.

QUESTION 1: Calculate the maximum increase in photon wavelength that can occur during Compton scattering.
= ??? pm

QUESTION 2: What is the energy (in electron volts) of the smallest-energy x-ray photon for which Compton scattering could result in doubling the original wavelength?
= ??? MeV


**I'm quite lost. We haven't gotten to this in class and the homework is due soon..
