2-6Chap. 2Modern Physics Concepts9. A 1 MeV photon is Compton scattered at an angle of 55 degrees. Calculate(a) the energy of the scattered photon, (b) the change in wavelength, and (c)the recoil energy of the electron.Solution:(a) From Eq. (2.26)1 -COS(}smeC21 .1:E'=:E+= 1.835 MeV-I,Thus the scattered photon energy is E' = 1/1.835 = 0.545 MeV.(b) From Eq. (2.25) we have
