    Compton Scattering Question

    Ok, so would the new x component momentum for the photon be h/λ2 * Cosθ? Or is there something I'm missing? And would the initial y components for the photon and electron be zero? As for the final y components would they be: Ppfy= h/λ2 * sinθ? Pefy= p sinψ? So, in total: h/λ1 +...

    Compton Scattering Question

    I have a vague idea of what I'm supposed to be doing but I'm just so horrible at this. Ok, here's my attempt: The initial momentum of the photon in the x direction PLUS the initial momentum of the electron in the x direction (would it be zero??) has to equal the sum of both final x direction...

    Compton Scattering Question

    Homework Statement Okay, so here's the problem: In a Compton scattering experiment, a photon is scattered through an angle of 90.0 and the electron is set into motion in a direction at an angle of 20.0 to the original direction of the photon. (a) Explain how this information is...

    Magnetic Pendulum Fractal Basin Boundaries in Mathematica

    Homework Statement Hey all, this is for a laboratory. I need to determine the fractal basin boundaries for a magnetic pendulum swinging chaotically about 3 other magnets underneath. I was able to plot a single path for the pendulum in Mathematica, but now I need to expand my code to...
