Compton, de Broglie, and Wave-Particle Duality


There are similarities and differences between the Photoelectric Effect and Compton Scattering. Complete each of the six partial statements below using the following guide; all you need to provide for an answer is PE, CS, BOTH, or NEITHER.

• PE if the statement only applies to the Photoelectric Effect
• CS if the statement only applies to Compton Scattering
• BOTH if the statement only applies to both the Photoelectric Effect and Compton Scattering
• NEITHER if the statement applies to Neither the Photoelectric Effect or Compton Scattering

a. Energy is conserved in _____.


b. Photons are observed before and after the interaction in _____.

(2) 2.

What quantity measured in the Compton effect experiment show the wave-particle duality of light?

(5) 3.

An X-ray with a frequency of 3.74 × 1020 Hz is incident on a thin piece of metal. The lower frequency X-ray on the other side is observed deflected at 48o. What is the frequency of the deflected X-ray?


(5) 4.
