Rate calculation for e+p->

  1. How do I calculate the scattering rates for a beam of 10MeV electrons on a hydrogen target? I want to calculate the rate of e + p ->interact via photon to e+p and the rate of e + p ->interact via W boson to neutrino + neutron. I think the energy is low enough that I do not need to consider any other channels.
