## Sample Test Problems

1. Calculate the differential cross section, , for high energy scattering of particles of momentum p, from a spherical shell delta function

Assume that the potential is weak so that perturbation theory can be used. Be sure to write your answer in terms of the scattering angles.
2. Assume that a heavy nucleus attracts mesons with a weak Yakawa potential . Calculate the differential cross section, , for scattering high energy mesons (mass ) from that nucleus. Give your answer in terms of the scattering angle .
