The DeBroglie equation is used to find the wavelength of anything that has momentum (mass in motion). With the DeBroglie equation, we can tell if an object displays wave-like properties, depending on its mass.
The DeBroglie equation can be used on any particle with momentum, and is used to determine the wavelength of the particles movement. Since momentum is calculated by multiplying mass by velocity, the equation cannot be used for light particles as light does not have mass and thus does not have momentum.
