### DeBroglie Equation

With the DeBroglie equation, are you able to use it to find the wavelength of protons and neutrons as well? It is not limited to electrons?

The DeBroiglie Equation can be applied to anything that has a rest mass so it should be able to be applied to protons and neutrons

### Re: DeBroglie Equation

It can be applied to anything as small as electrons or something very large, such as a car. There is no restriction.

Having said that, the wavelength of a person or a car is so small that it is negligible. Only with very small objects like electrons will the wavelength be measurable.
