Question

An X-rays photon of wavelength  and frequency v collides with an electron and bounces off. If  are respectively the wavelength and frequency of the scattered photon, then

Solution

Correct option is

Due to collision, the energy of the scattered photon will be less than that of the incident photon an some energy is lost in the collision. Now . Thus if E decreases v decreases and  increases. Hence
