It was shown earlier that the differential cross section scale is [math]\frac{d\sigma}{d\Omega}\approx 16.2\times 10^{-2}mb=16.2\mu b[/math]

For an Ammonia target:

[math]\rho_{target}\times l_{target}=\frac{.8 g}{1 cm^3}\times \frac{1 mole}{17 g} \times \frac{6\times10^{23} atoms}{1 mole} \times \frac{1 cm}{ } \times \frac{10^{-24} cm^2}{barn} =2.82\times 10^{-2} barns[/math]

If the beam had 4E8 incident electrons, the differential cross-section would be found with,

[math]\frac{1}{\rho_{target}\times l_{target} \times 4\times 10^8}=8.87\times 10^{-8} barns=.0887 \mu b[/math]

Since extra Phi angles have been produced obviously a larger number of incident electrons would be needed. Looking at the number Moller events are created for 1E6, 1E7, and 4E8 incident electrons, we can estimate the number of incident electrons needed for the number of extra Phi angles produced.

Moller Events per Incident Electrons
# of Incident Electrons # of Moller Events # of E>500MeV
1e6 38343 134
1e7 383633 1490
4e8 12444898 48548

This shows a trait of providing around 100 Moller electrons of Energy greater that 500 MeV for about 1 million incident electrons of Energy 11 GeV.

Since a run of x where the boosting of the number of Phi angles leaves around 4431573 Moller electrons with Energy greater than 500 MeV, this would imply around 4e10 incident electrons of Energy 11 GeV.

Using the same expression, but this time for 4e10 incident electrons,

[math]\frac{1}{\rho_{target}\times l_{target} \times 4\times 10^{10}}=8.87\times 10^{-10} barns=.000887 \mu b[/math]
