1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data If x ray with a weavelength of 4.5*10^-12m are used in a Compton effect experiment and are scattered at an anlge of 53.0 degree, the wavelength of the scattered radiation is? ANS: 5.47*10^-12 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution The only thing i could think of was Δλ=h/mc*(1-cosθ) which doesnt work seeing as how the xray didnt impact anything, i even tried it as if it impaced an electron using the mass of the electron. What formula or concept am i missing?
