22. To find the longest possible wavelength λ max (corresponding to the lowest possible energy) of a photon which can produce a photoelectric effect in platinum, we set K max = 0 in Eq. 38-5 and use hf = hc / λ . Thus hc / λ max = Φ . We solve for λ max : λ max . == = hc Φ 1240 532 233 eV nm nm nm.

Consequently, the new photon energy is E hc ' '. .. == = λ 1240 0 0757 164 10 164 4 eV nm nm eV keV . By energy conservation, then, the kinetic energy of the electron must equal E' – E = 17.5 keV – 16.4 keV = 1.1 keV. 36. The initial wavelength of the photon is (using hc = 1240 eV·nm) λ= = = hc E 1240 17500 0 07086 eV nm eV . or 70.86 pm. The maximum Compton shift occurs for φ = 180°, in which case Eq. 38-11 (applied to an electron) yields ∆λ = F H G I K J −° = × F H G I K J −− = hc mc e 23 1 180 1240 511 10 1 1 0 00485 (c o s ) (( ) ) . eV nm eV where Table 37-3 is used. Therefore, the new photon wavelength is λ ' = 0.07086 nm + 0.00485 nm = 0.0757 nm.
