Hi,

I am trying to derive the compton effect formula.

I am not very good at physics, however, I am trying to get better!

WILL YOU PLEASE EXPLAIN EVERYTHING YOU DO!

Thanks- really appreciated!

I thought YOU are trying to derive it?
Where did you get problems?

There are many textbooks covering this derivation, you can check them for hints how to do it.

Cant follow text books

Hi, unfortunately I can't really follow the text books- like I said, not very good at physics.

If you could help me out in deriving it, that would be great! thanks

Do not expect that someone posts a full derivation here - it is a lot of work, and it would look similar to the derivations in the text books, so there is no point in that.

If you don't know the required physics (special relativity), it might be useful if you start learning this first.

cool, thanks. Will start my learning what special relativity is. Thanks.

Also, in our lecture course we got told that we should be able to derive this... and so as I couldnt understand more that conservation of momentum, I thought I should ask.

Without knowing what you know and what you don't know, there is no way anyone can present any kind of help. What will inevitably happen is that every time we introduce something which we think you should know, we end up back-tracking because we have to explain that!
