Physics 3101, HW#3, Fri, Jan 22 2010 Name: Problem 1: Compton Scattering (8 points) Gamma rays emitted by radioactive nuclei also exhibit measurable Compton scattering. Suppose a 0 . 511 MeV photon from a positron-electron annihilation scatter at 110 from a free electron. (a) What are the energies of the scattered photon and the recoiling electron? ( 3 points ) (b) Relative to the initial direction of the 0 . 511 MeV photon, what is the di- rection of the recoiling electron’s velocity vector? ( 5 points ) 1

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
