### Re: Wavelength and Electrons

It depends on the speed the electron is traveling at. You can calculate the wavelength using De Broglie's equation (h/mv).

### Re: Wavelength and Electrons

The wavelength of an electron can be determined with the de Broglie equation: Wavelength = Planck's constant/ (Mass x Velocity).

### Re: Wavelength and Electrons

Wavelength depends on the speed that the object is moving at. The wavelength of any given electron is not constant.

Wavelength can be determined using the De Broglie equation: h (Planck's constant) / (mass)(velocity) of the given object.
