Photoelectric Effect

Q. The half life of a positron is very short. It reacts with an electron and the masses of both are converted to two gamma ray photons. 0/+1 e+ 0/-1 e → 2γ This reaction is called an annihilation reaction. The mass of an electron or positron is 9.109 x 10^-31 kg. (a) Calculate the energy produced by the reaction of one electron and one positron (b) Assuming that the two γ ray photons have the same frequency, calculate this frequency
