In lecture, professor Lavelle went how over solving a DeBroglie equation and asked whether or not the wavelength had measurable wavelike properties. One of the answers did while the other didn't. How did he go about solving that?

He mentioned how if the value is less than 10^-18, it would be too small to detect. Anything greater than that is measurable.

He said the approximate cutoff is 10^-18 for whether or not you would be able to observe the wavelike properties.

Dr. Lavelle stated that the threshold to detect is anything greater than 10^-18. If it is less than this, it will be too small to detect.
