Is there set formulas on how exactly this works. We learned in class very very quickly about how a electron and positron collide and form two photons. There has to be a direct relation between the photons properties and the electron/positron. Thanks

The "formula" is known as "Quantum Electrodynamics". Pick up a copy of Griffiths' particle physics book if you want the skinny
