The initial momentum of the system in the lab frame is zero (since the equalmass particles have equal speeds in opposite directions), so the final momentum must also be zero. The photons must have equal wavelengths and must be traveling in opposite directions. Equal means equal energy, so each photon has energy J. 10 46 . 9 14 c) pm 10 . 2 ) J 10 46 . 9 ( so 14 = = = = hc E hc hc E The wavelength calculated in Example 44.1 is 2.43 pm.
