Wave-like Properties of Electron

Postby Bree Perkins 1E » Sun Jun 10, 2018 8:27 pm

How can you tell whether the wavelike properties of ejected electrons can be detected? Is there a certain numerical cutoff?

i think it's typically like 1x10^-18

I don't think that there is an exact numerical cutoff, but the wavelength can not be extremely small because then it will not be able to be detected. For example, a wavelength of 1 x 10-34 would be too small. I agree with the previous response that 1 x 10-18 would be the smallest wavelength that could be detected. I hope that helps!

where did that number come from, is it just something to know or is there a reason behind it?

I believe it is a given value.
