Formula Compton Scattering Wavelength before    Scattering angle   

Formula
Formula: Compton Scattering
Compton scattering (photon-electron scattering)

Wavelength before

Unit
Wavelength of the photon before the collision.

Wavelength after

Unit
Wellenlänge des Photons nach dem Stoß.

Scattering angle

Unit
Scattering angle between the two momentum vectors of the photon after and before the collision.

Mass

Unit
Mass of the particle (e.g. an electron) at which the photon is scattered.

Planck's Constant

Unit
Planck's constant is a physical constant and has the value: \( h = 6.626 \cdot 10^{-34} \, \mathrm{Js} \).

Speed of light

Unit
Speed of light is a physical constant and has the value in vacuum: \( c = 299 \, 792 \, 458 \, \frac{\mathrm m}{\mathrm s} \).
