Unformatted text preview: ground state of the hydrogen atom in Born approximation is given by d σ d ω = m 2 e 4 4 π 2 ¯ h 4 q 4 ² 116 [4 + ( qa ) 2 ] 2 ³ 2 , where q 2 = ( ~ k~ k ) 2 = 4 k 2 sin 2 θ/ 2 is the momentum transfer squared and a is the Bohr radius. Ignore the identity of the two electrons. b) Verify that the diﬀerential cross section is ﬁnite in the forward direction ( θ = 0) in contrast with the case of Coulomb scattering. Explain why this is so....
