(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

In a pp differential cross section, we have the differential cross section dσ/dΩ = 0.111 b/steradian at a lab energy of 4.3 MeV and a lab scattering angle of 30°. What is the s wave phase shift δ?

2. Relevant equations

dσ/dΩ = sin^{2}δ / k^{2}[1]

k = (2mE)^{(1/2)}/ h [2]

3. The attempt at a solution

Am I using the correct equations? Also, I haven't been given any value for m. Should I just use a proton's mass? I am basically using eqn 1 to get the phase shift. Also, I realized that I didn't use the scattering angle of 30° at all..
