If the maxmimum energy imparted to an electron in Compton scattering is 45 keV what is the wavelength of the incident photon?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So a compton scattering happens and the energy is 45 keV and I need to find the wavelength of the photon incident to this electron. I think I need to use

Lambda = h/mc (1-Cos), but I am not given an angle.
