Homework Help: College Physics

Posted by Angie on Tuesday, April 13, 2010 at 11:48pm.

An x-ray photon collides head-on with an electron and is scattered directly back at 160◦ to
its original direction.

What is the shift in the wavelength of the incident x-ray?

do i need to figure out the "compton shift" in order to solve..can someone please show me how to do this problem? Please and thank you so much!
