  1. Apr 29, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations
    As above

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Rearranging the above equations to remove unknowns, finally substituting new equations into the compton effect equation.

    Will post up next page as I fill it,

    - is it acceptable to post up pictures of my working as I go?

    2nd page isolating variables


    3rd page, here is where I get stuck, I need to rearrange to solve for theta but my formula is now a horrendous mess ...

    Well that was disappointing.
