Consider an X-ray beam of wavelength 0.1 nm and a gamma ray beam of wavelength 0.00188 nm. if each is scattered by an angle of 90 degrees by a free electron, what is the compton shift in the wavelength of the rays? in each case also determine the kinetic energy transferred to the recoiling electron and how much of the incident energy in the rays is lost.
