The wavelength of an electron is Wavelength=10^-12m

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

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

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.
