### Diffraction patterns

Electrons have diffraction patterns that result from constructive or destructive interference. How does this relate to De Broglie's equation?

### Re: Diffraction patterns

I don’t know the specifics of how they got each variable or constant, but conceptually the electron’s diffraction pattern displayed how a particle with a mass can show wavelike properties. De Broglie’s equation relates the electron with its mass and velocity (p) to a wavelike property (wavelength).
