De Broglie Lecture Question

Postby Isabella Dal Porto 1H » Sat Oct 12, 2019 11:17 pm

There was an example in class that said, "Calculate the De Broglie wavelength of an electron traveling at
. Do you think your calculated wavelength, for electrons with similar velocities, could be experimentally verified/detected in this lab?" The solution was. Was the mass just used as an example to show when the wavelength could be verified or was it calculated beforehand?

The mass of an electron is me = 9.109383 x 10-31 kg, so that's where the number came from in the answer. It's also on our constants and equations sheets so we don't have to memorize it.

Hopefully this helped!
