Homework Help: quantum physics

Posted by Mischa on Wednesday, May 7, 2008 at 6:08pm.

After a .800-nm x-ray photon scatters from a free electron, the electron recoils with a speed equal to 1.20 x 10^6 m/s. (a) What was the Compton Shift in the photon's wavelength? (b) Through what angle was the photon scattered?

I got an answer for (a), but when i use it to find (b) the solution does not exist. I clearly did something wrong, and I can't figure it out.
