										Here energy of photon = E

E = 6.4 KeV = 6.4 * 10^3 ev
Momentum of Photon = E/C = 6.4 * 10^3/3 * 10^8 = 3.41 * 10^-24 m/sec.
According to collision theory of momentum of photon = momentum of atom
∴ Momentum of Atom = P = 3.41 * 10^-24 m/sec
∴ Recoil K.E. of atom = P^2 /2m
⇒ (3.41 * 10^26)^2 eV/(2)(9.3 * 10^-26 * 1.6 * 10^-19) = 3.9 eV [1 joule = 1.6 * 10^-19 ev]
