3. The attempt at a solution

## \lambda' = 2 \lambda ##

## \lambda' - \lambda = \lambda = \frac { h} { mc} \cos{ \phi } ##

Here, ## \phi = \frac { pi} 4 ## is the angle between photon's original line of motion and its line of motion after scattering.

Putting the values, I got E = ## \frac { hc} {\lambda } ## = 1.75 MeV, i.e. option (a).

Is this correct?
