SMM Ch. 3: Problem #47 (Headon collision means the photon backscatters, i.e. Î¸ = 180 â—¦ in the Compton scattering formula.) 6. Carry out the sums involved in obtaining the average energy of a Planck oscillator in the derivation of Planckâ€™s law, i.e. show that Â¯ E = âˆž X n =0 E n eE n /kT âˆž X n =0 eE n /kT 1 = âˆž X n =0 nhf enhf/kT âˆž X n =0 enhf/kT = hf e hf/kT1 . Hint: Recall the geometrical series result âˆž X n =0 r n = 1 1r , r < 1 . 2...
