Frequency of an object with mass

Postby Melody Haratian 2J » Sun Oct 25, 2020 6:40 pm

Hi everyone! We use De Broglie’s equation to find the wavelength of an object with mass. After finding that wavelength, is there any way to convert it into frequency. Can the E = hv equation be used or not since its an equation only for electromagnetic radiation? Is there any other equation that can be used?
Thank you!

E = hv and c=(lambda)v are for light only.

After finding the wavelength then you can use c= wavelength x frequency to find the frequency. All you would have to do is manipulate the formula and plug in what you have.

Yes! You can use the question c=wavelength*frequency. C in this equation is the speed of light, which is 3.0*10^8m/s.
