You want to give an electron an evergy of 25kev in a Compton Collision. What is the minimum initial photon energy you need?

Equations:

[tex]\Delta[/tex][tex]\lambda[/tex]= h/m

_{e}c(1-cos([tex]\theta[/tex]))

E=mc

^{2}

E=hv=hc/[tex]\lambda[/tex]

I'm not really sure where to start from here. I know the answer is 138kev but I am not sure how to go about getting it.
