Question:

Gamma rays emitted by radioactive nuclei also exhibit measurable Compton scattering. Suppose a 0.511 MeV photon from a positron-electron annihilation scatters at 110° from a free electron. What are the energies of the scattered photon and the recoiling electron? Relative to the initial direction of the 0.511 MeV photon, what is the direction of the recoiling electron’s velocity vector?
