DeBroglie

Is the DeBroglie Equation only going to be used when mass or velocity is required?

Re: DeBroglie

De Broglie can be used when mass or velocity is given - or both, to find the wavelength.

Re: DeBroglie

The DeBroglie equation’s purpose it to calculate the wavelength of objects with a mass, as opposed to c=(wavelength)(frequency) which is unique for light. If given a velocity of an object, or if told to calculate the wavelength of an electron with x velocity, this is when to use the DeBroglie equation.
