In deriving the equation for the compton wavelength shift


A beam of electrons strikes a crystal and the outgoing beam is very intense at angle theta.

A beam of photons also strikes the same crystal at the same incoming and outgoing angles, and the outgoing beam is intense at the same angle theta.

The electrons and photons must have the same initial
a) linear momentum
b) energy
c) wavelength
d) work function
e) energy and linear momentum
f) wavelength and linear momentum
