The t quantity is known as the square of the 4-momentum transfer
In the CM Frame
where and is the angle between the before and after momentum in the CM frame
Using the relativistic relation this reduces to
The maximum momentum is transfered at 90 degrees, i.e.
This can be rewritten again using the relativistic energy relation
In the Lab Frame
