Hi,

I read that scattering is just hitting a particle and bouncing off at some other direction. But I also read that scattering involves the complete absorption and emission of a particle/wave. Is this part correct? I have been unable to find that bit of information anywhere else.

There are different possibilities, depending on the particles involved - photons, neutrons, various charged particles, etc.
