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
There is no scattering, or no momentum transfer since the incident momentum direction is the same as the scattered momentum direction
The maximum momentum is transfered at 90 degrees, i.e.
This can be rewritten again using the relativistic energy relation
In the Lab Frame
Maximum Moller Energy in Lab Frame
Since t is invariant between frames
The Moller electron has a maximum energy possible of:
