The Compton effect can occur for scattering from any particle
The Compton effect can occur for scattering from any particle— for example, from a proton.
(a) Compared with the Compton wavelength for an electron, the Compton wavelength for a proton is (1) longer, (2) the same, (3) shorter. Why?
(b) What is the value of the Compton wavelength for a proton?
(c) Determine the ratio of the maximum Compton wavelength shift for scattering by an electron to that for scattering by a proton.
