Homework Help: Energy and Wavelength of a photon in pair production

  1. Aug 8, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Electron and positron each have a kinetic energy of 220 keV even when far apart.

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution
    I have no idea. My book says the answer 1.46 MeV, 8.49 x 10^-13 m but I don't know how to get that.

    Position is antiparticle of electron. So what will happen when they collide?
