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
