Calculating the energy loss of the quasi-elastic peak

  1. Apr 5, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A 500 MeV beam is scattered by a carbon target at 60 degrees. What is the energy loss ([itex]\omega[/itex] or [itex]\nu[/itex]) of the quasi-elastic peak? Ignore binding effects.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    This assignment is due tomorrow but we have yet to cover this material in my nuclear physics class. I am using Introduction to Nuclear Physics (Kenneth S. Krane) and I have not found a useful section where this is discussed. I was hoping for at least a starting point for this problem or at least a good website or lecture notes that discuss this material. Any ideas?
