Re: Atomic/covalent radii [ENDORSED]

@ the above question, I think the distance between two atoms in a covalent or ionic bond would be different from the distance between two atoms of an element that you would look at to find the atomic radius, so the radii would be different. The atomic radius is the "true radius" of an elem...

Atomic/covalent radii [ENDORSED]

Is it possible for a covalent radius to be considered an atomic radius as well, like in the case of a diatomic molecule? Basically, is there overlap between these two kinds of radii or are they mutually exclusive from each other. And if an element will not be forming covalent bonds, would it not hav...

Re: DeBroglie

DeBroglie determines the wavelength/wavelike properties of things with mass. So you don't use it for light, just things with mass (and velocity since you need momentum which is mass x velocity). You would probably use it in a problem to find wavelength, mass, or velocity (h is a constant)
