A photon creates an electron-positron pair each with a kinetic energy equal to the rest energy of the electron. Find the ratio of the incident photon wavelength to the de Broglie wavelength of one of the particles produced.
This is my homework question this week. I seem to be going in circles with it. Do I need to use relativistic equations for this problem?
