Calculation:
Write the expression for the change in wavelength of the Compton effect.
λ = h m e c ( 1 cos θ )
Here, λ is the change in waveleght, h is Plak's constant, me is mass of the electron and θ is scattering angle.
For the maximum change in frequency, the change in wavelength will be zero.
Substitute, 0 m for λ in the above expression.
0 m = h m e c ( 1 cos θ ) 1 cos θ = 0 θ = cos 1 ( 1 ) = 0
Thus, the scattering angle is 0
