de broglie post module q 34

Postby Karina Koo 2H » Sun Oct 21, 2018 12:47 am

If an electron (mass 9.11 x 10-31 kg) has an associated wavelength of 7.28 x 10-9 m, what is its speed? Is your answer reasonable, why?

You would use the DeBroglie equation rearranged to

Where v=velocity
Planck's Constant, h=6.626x10^-34
m=mass

You can tell if it is reasonable if the velocity is faster than the speed of light or not
