A parallel beam of light of wavelength $100 \mathrm{~nm}$ passes through a sample of atomic hydrogen gas in ground state.

a. Assume that when a photon supplies some of its energy to a hydrogen atom, the rest of the energy appears as another photon moving in the same direction as the incident photo. Neglecting the light emitted by the excited hydrogen atoms in the direction of the incident beam, what wavelength may be observed in the transmitted beam?

b. A radiation detector is placed near the gas to detect radiation coming perpendicular to the incident beam. Find the wavelength of radiation that may be detected by the detector.
