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
