If we were to scatter high energy (say E>>m_e) electrons off each other is there a hand wavy argument to come up with a rough estimate for the ratio of inelastic to elastic cross-sections?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Would the dominate inelastic collision between two high energy electrons result in a single photon emitted?

Thanks for any help!
