When using DeBroglie's equation do you have to calculate given values into certain units before putting them into the equation?
DeBroglie's wavelength formula is lambda=h/mv. Lambda (wavelength) must be in meters but can be converted after the calculation if the question asks for a different unit.Planck's constant is given in J*s, momentum is given in kg*m/s, mass is given in kg, and velocity is given in m/s. If not converted to the proper units, the units won't cancel each other out.
