SMM Ch. 3: Problem #47 (Head-on collision means the photon backscatters, i.e. = 180 in the Compton scattering formula.) 6. Carry out the sums involved in obtaining the average energy of a Planck oscillator in the derivation of Plancks law, i.e. show that E = X n =0 E n e-E n /kT X n =0 e-E n /kT 1 = X n =0 nhf e-nhf/kT X n =0 e-nhf/kT = hf e hf/kT-1 . Hint: Recall the geometrical series result X n =0 r n = 1 1-r , r < 1 . 2...
