DeBroglie Equation & Units

Postby sofiakavanaugh » Sun Oct 15, 2017 7:13 pm


Is the DeBroglie equation the only time that we use kg for a calculation? In any other equation we would want to use g (or J, m, or any other base unit without prefixes like kilo), right?

Up to this point in the class I believe that yes only DeBroglie equation requires us to use a prefix like kilo-

yes, only for this equation (so far) we have to remember to convert the mass if it is given in grams to kilograms before calculating the wavelength.
