if the compton wavelength shift is in scattering an electron is 0.29 pico-m, what is the photon scattering angle? (you make take T=600K)

I dont know why I was told the that T=600K?

[tex] \Delta \lambda= \frac{h}{mc} (1-cos\theta)[/tex]

[tex]\frac{h}{mc}=0.00243 nm[/tex]

[tex]0.119341564=1-cos\theta[/tex]

[tex]\theta=28.278 degrees[/tex]

i dont see where the temperature comes in.
is my work correct?

I haven't checked the numbers but the expression is correct. And there should be no role for temperature in the problem.
