A scattering of light particles from a heavy stationary particles, the momentum of the light particles change direction after scattering, and we could use Born approximations.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

We also take that the initial momentum and the final momentum has the same magnitude.

But how could it be when total momentum should be conserved?
